UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Many of us are returning from leave this week ahead of the start of Semester 2 classes. I trust you had an enjoyable break. Thank you to Dawn Freshwater for standing in for me these past two weeks.

I’d like to begin the semester by acknowledging the extraordinary achievements of UWA Professor Barry Marshall. It’s been 10 years since Barry and his colleague, Dr. J. Robin Warren, won the Nobel Prize for their discovery of the cause of peptic ulcers, the bacterium H. pylori.

To mark the 10th anniversary, I am pleased to announce that at a ceremony during Research Week in September, the UWA Science Library will be renamed the Barry J. Marshall Library. I’m sure you’ll join me in congratulating Barry for this well-deserved honour.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor
