Professor Barry Marshall and Emeritus Professor J Robin Warren were awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.

Infectious disease is a growing concern for our planet, join me in a shining a light on infectious disease research…

Today, Professor Marshall is the Director of The Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases Research and Training, founded in his honour.

In addition to Helicobacter pylori research, the Marshall Centre is at the forefront of infectious disease identification and surveillance, diagnostics and drug design, and transformative discovery.

His research has expanded with this group to embrace new technologies including next generation sequencing, and genomic analysis. He recently developed a novel approach for diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders through artificial intelligence and analysis of bowel sounds.
