The Inventors Association of Australia (WA) Inc, in collaboration with the Innovation Centre of WA, has the pleasure of hosting an evening with one of Western Australia's most famous sons, Nobel Laureate Barry Marshall M.D on Thursday, 5 June 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, at the Innovation Centre in Bentley WA.
Barry Marshall will share his inspirational journey from young clinical fellow at the Royal Perth Hospital in WA to standing in the spotlight on the world stage as the joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2005. Together with J. Robin Warren, a pathologist from Perth, Barry Marshall M.D. made the remarkable and unexpected discovery that inflammation in the stomach, as well as ulceration of the stomach, is the result of an infection of the stomach caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori.
Their tenacious pursuit of a new paradigm for peptic ulcer disease led to their groundbreaking discovery. Join us to hear Barry Marshall M.D. share his story of how innate curiosity, obstinately challenging the status quo and some good old fashioned self-experimenting, led to this scientific breakthrough.
Associate Professor Adam Osseiran, President of the Inventors Association of Australia (WA) Inc said, “the Inventors Association of Australia (WA) Inc and the Innovation Centre of WA are excited to work together on this special event. If you thought that today's inventors and start-ups face serious challenges in getting new ventures off the ground and finding commercial success, then you will find inspiration in hearing Barry Marshall M.D. share his thoughts on how to challenge the status quo.”
Barry J. Marshall M.D is a physician, Nobel Prize Laureate in Medicine, Professor of Clinical Microbiology at the University of Western Australia, and most recently the Francis R. and Helen M. Pentz Professor in Penn State's Eberly College of Science.
