Nobel Prize for Victoria University


Victoria University’s newly opened Alan MacDiarmid building has been gifted the Nobel Prize Medal which belonged to the late scientist of the same name.

The medal was gifted to the university by MacDiarmid’s widow Gayl Gentile, who acknowledges that having the building named after him is a huge honour.

MacDiarmid was a part-time student at Victoria before furthering his studies overseas and earning the Nobel Prize for his achievements in the field of Chemistry.

The medal will be placed in the foyer of the new $48 Million science building. Vice-Chancellor Pat Walsh described it as “an inspiration to the staff and students that study here”.
