    Curiosity-driven research leads to award-winning discoveries

    Orlando—Researchers should continue to explore offhand leads or spur-of-the-moment ideas, said 2005 Nobel laureate Barry Marshall, FRACP, FRS, FAA. These very actions have sometimes led to world-changing, award-winning research.

    “Curiosity-driven research is where we want to be . . . including free thinking and following up on any kind of leads,” said Dr. Marshall, with the University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia.

    Dr. Marshall delivered the opening keynote address—“How curiosity-driven research can lead to the Nobel Prize”—during Sunday’s ARVO/Alcon Keynote Series. Dr. Marshall discussed the path to his and J. Robin Warren’s discovery of Helicobacter pylori and its role in peptic ulcer disease.
