The Erika and Wylie Gibbons Post Graduate Medical Scholarship
The Erika and Wylie Gibbons Post Graduate Medical Scholarship commenced 2022 and will continue to be funded in perpetuity by The Trustee for Erika Gibbons Wife of Wylie Masonic Memorial Trust Fund.
The Erika and Wylie Gibbons Postgraduate Medical Scholarship was established by the trustees of the Sibyl Gibbons, wife of Wylie, Masonic Memorial Trust, guided by the wishes of Dr Wylie Gibbons OSM MStJ MBBS(Qld) MS FRCS(Edin) FRACS MCICD(Rome), just prior to his death in August 2021. Erika was Wylie’s second wife and this new scholarship complements the Sibyl Gibbons Wife of Wylie Post Graduate Medical Scholarship that was established after Sibyl passed in 2008.
Dr Gibbons established an enduring friendship with Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall, after Professor Marshall assisted Dr Gibbons to publish his life’s work in the volume ‘Gastric Hypothermia for Major Haematemesis’ in 2017.
Professor Marshall admired the work of Dr Gibbons as a surgeon who led innovations in treatment of gastric haematemesis, prior to the cause of peptic ulcer being known.
The scholarship is to be awarded to postgraduate research students in financial need, to undertake a research project with the Marshall Centre for Infectious Diseases Research and Training at the University of Western Australia in the field of biomedical sciences (microbiology, immunology or related disciplines approved by relevant supervisor)
