2013 David Maddison Lecture
How to win the Nobel prize…Secret tips from Nobel Laureate Barry J. Marshall AC
The 2013 David Maddison Lecture will be presented by Nobel Laureate Barry J. Marshall AC, who famously swallowed the bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, to prove that it caused peptic ulcers.
Until his discovery, the scientific community believed that peptic ulcers were caused by stress or other lifestyle factors. Professor Marshall's ingestion of his own experiment changed the way these diseases are treated. Professor Marshall was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2005 with his colleague Nobel Laureate J. Robin Warren.
Nobel Laureate Marshall is currently Clinical Professor of Medicine and Microbiology at the University of Western Australia, and co-director of the Marshall Centre for Infectious Disease Research and Training UWA.
