Who is Barry Marshall?
Professor Barry Marshall is a medical pioneer whose work transcends all boundaries. In 2005 Barry J. Marshall and J. Robin Warren were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in recognition of their 1982 discovery that a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, causes one of the most common and important diseases of mankind, peptic ulcer disease. Barry Marshall met Robin Warren, a pathologist interested in gastritis, during internal medicine fellowship training at Royal Perth Hospital in 1981. Together, the pair studied the presence of spiral bacteria in association with gastritis. The following year (1982), Helicobacter pylori was cultured for the first time and they developed their hypothesis related to the bacterial cause of peptic ulcer and gastric cancer. In 1984, while at Fremantle Hospital, Marshall fulfilled Koch's postulates for H.pylori and gastritis in a well-publicised self-administration experiment, in which he drank a culture of H.pylori. Persevering despite widespread skepticism, Marshall also came up with combinations of drugs that killed the H.pylori bacteria and eliminated ulcers permanently. The hypothesis that H.pylori is a causative factor of stomach cancer was accepted in 1994 by the World Health Organisation. This work has now been acknowledged as the most significant discovery in the history of gastroenterology and is compared to the development of the polio vaccine and the eradication of smallpox. Affecting 50% of the global population, H.pylori is recognized as the most common chronic infection in the world. "Like a trail of crumbs, the DNA of our Helicobacter pylori can show where we were born and where our ancestors traveled from over the past 60,000 years" says Marshall. In 2008 Professor Marshall was elected into the prestigious US National Academy of Science, an institution that was established in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln. This recognition further establishes Barry's international scientific credentials. Barry was born in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia in 1951 and attended Marist Brothers College in Perth from 1960-68. He completed his undergraduate medical degree at The University of Western Australia in 1974.

I will tell you robin warrens but I'm not to sure about Barry Marshall, robin warren was a pathologist, physician and scientist interested in all areas of medicine.
Barry Marshallis an Australian physician,Nobel Prize laureate in Physiology or Medicine, and Professor of Clinical Microbiology at theUniversity of Western Australia.Marshall …is well-known for proving that the bacterium Helicobacter pylori is the cause of most peptic ulcers, reversing decades of medical doctrine which held that ulcers were caused by stress, spicy foods, and too much acid. Nobel laureates, Professor Barry Marshall and Emeritus Professor Robin Warren identified the bacterium responsible for peptic ulcers. Now, crippling stomach ache and invasive surgery can be avoided by taking a simple course of antibiotics.

In Barry Bonds
Barry Bonds Barry Bonds is an American baseball player. He recently set MLB's career record for home runs. There is a lot of controversy surrounding Bonds since… he implicated himself as having used steroids, although he says he did so unknowingly. There is an investigation concerning steroids and performance enhancing drugs being conducted by MLB and hopefully soon we will know more.
In Barack Obama
There is no such person. It's a mythical name created by a group of people called "Birthers" (who persist in believing the president was actually born in Kenya, when in fact i…t is well-documented that he was born in the United States). There is NO evidence that Barack Obama used the name Barry Soetoro, nor did his stepfather ever legally adopt him. Some of the Birthers like to claim Mr. Obama used this name at Columbia where he was allegedly a "foreign student." He did not, and he was not.
Himself. He drank a solution of the H. pylori bacteria and gave himself gastritis.
