Robin Warren

Robin Warren was born on June 11, 1937 in Adelaide, Australia, Australian, is Australian pathologist. Australian pathologist and Nobel Laureate, Robin Warren, needs no introduction. He won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2005 for the discovery of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and its role in the gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. Warren’s life took a major turn when he noticed an unexpected bacterial growth in the gastric biopsy of a patient. Determined to find out the cause of it, he ventured forth and began extensively studying the same along with Barry Marshall. It took the duo seven years to eventually establish the presence of bacterium Helicobacter pylori as the major cause for peptic ulcer. Interestingly, their finding and research was not accepted by the scientific society which rebuffed the fact that bacteria of any kind could survive in the acidic environment of the stomach. It was only later on that the global community accepted the duo’s finding and thus awarded them with the prestigious Nobel Prize.

🌙 Zodiac

Robin Warren’s zodiac sign is Cancer. According to astrologers, the sign of Cancer belongs to the element of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them. Being ruled by the Moon, phases of the lunar cycle deepen their internal mysteries and create fleeting emotional patterns that are beyond their control. As children, they don't have enough coping and defensive mechanisms for the outer world, and have to be approached with care and understanding, for that is what they give in return.

🌙 Chinese Zodiac Signs

Robin Warren was born in the Year of the Ox. Another of the powerful Chinese Zodiac signs, the Ox is steadfast, solid, a goal-oriented leader, detail-oriented, hard-working, stubborn, serious and introverted but can feel lonely and insecure. Takes comfort in friends and family and is a reliable, protective and strong companion. Compatible with Snake or Rooster.
