Western Suburbs Weekly - - Training & Education -

UNIVER­SITY of WA No­bel Lau­re­ate Barry Mar­shall has been pre­sented with a Friend­ship Award from the Chi­nese Gov­ern­ment.

Pro­fes­sor Mar­shall, who is a stu­dent of Man­darin at UWA’s Con­fu­cius In­sti­tute and a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to China, said he was im­pressed with the strong gov­ern­ment sup­port for young sci­en­tists at uni­ver­si­ties in China.

“They are the fu­ture and I hope that my ef­forts will help strengthen col­lab­o­ra­tions be­tween the Univer­sity of Western Aus­tralia and China,” Pro­fes­sor Mar­shall said.

“To strengthen our col­lab­o­ra­tions, I con­tinue to learn Man­darin, I study the Chi­nese cul­ture and I love to travel to scenic places in China.

“Con­fu­cius once said, ‘Walk 10,000 miles and read 10,000 books’ – let’s all aim to do that.”

UWA’s Sci­ence Li­brary was re­cently re­named the Barry J Mar­shall Li­brary in hon­our of Pro­fes­sor Mar­shall’s 2005 No­bel Prize.
