The J. Robin Warren Library officially opened at UWA


I declare it open (clapping) This library
has been transformed from a traditional library with books and journals, into an incredible
state of the art modern learning facility. The students love coming here. they can work on their own, they can work
collaboratively. They still have a book collection, they have
on line resources and they can do it mixing together with academics and alumni of our
university. If we’re going to maintain a world class health
car system here in Western Australia we need the best staff that we can get, and the medical
staff of the future will be those that can adapt to a changing environment, delivering
health care right across this wide state. So having a new library, a new learning space
for these students means that they come out much more adaptable to the new environment
in which they will find themselves as doctors. And in addition to that, it also means that
our WA health care system has a new breed of doctor that is coming through which is
resilient, versatile and is able to adapt to a changing environment. Professor Robin Warren discovered Helicobacter
Pilori for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 2005. His discovery was made on the back of doing
his job as a pathologist. He saw the bacteria and that discovery has
changed the lives of millions of people throughout the world. It really was amazing, I mean if you want
to know how I feel, it’s a bit overwhelming because I’m just an ordinary person, how the
hell am I going to have my name on the University library? yeah, it’s wonderful.
