Speaker information

Professor Barry Marshall

Please note, tickets have now sold out for this event. The lecture will be available online 7 days after the event.

This year the Prize Lecture will be given by Professor Barry Marshall. Professor Marshall courageously infected himself with a microscopic corkscrew-shaped organism called Helicobacter pylori in order to prove this bacteria was the cause of many chronic, painful and often disabling stomach ailments (such as ulcers and gastritis) and that these conditions could in fact be permanently cured by a short course of antibiotics, although the medical profession had previously taught that these illnesses were caused by emotional stress and dietary factors and required a lifetime of treatment. Dr. Marshall’s discovery is recognized as one of the greatest breakthroughs in medicine since the polio vaccine and he received the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2005.

Following the lecture there will be a drinks reception on the main UCL campus.
