Barry J Marshall, Nobel Prize Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, will lead a team of top-tier scientists cooperating with Zhuhai People's (Renmin) Hospital to cultivate talent and research the clinical diagnosis and treatment of digestion system diseases.

The Australian (Perth) physician is Professor of Clinical Microbiology at the University of Western Australia and a Foreign Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He is noted for work to discover the bacterium Helicobacter pylori three decades ago. His demonstration of the role of the bacterium in causing gastritis and peptic ulcers won him and a colleague, pathologist Robin Warren, the Nobel Prize in 2005.

Marshall was recruited as a distinguished professor of the hospital on April 3. He spoke highly of the Artis Zeego DSA-CT hundred-level laminar flow hybrid operating room and the high-standard clinical skill practice systems during his tour of the hospital's Interventional Treatment Center.

Marshall stressed the mutually beneficial role between fundamental and clinical research, and proposed joint scientific research projects on Helicobacter pylori.

There will be further exchanges with world-renowned medical experts and to cultivate those with international vision and advanced technology to serve patients in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, said Renmin Hospital president Lu Ligong.
