Every October, the Nobel prizes remind the world of the power of human excellence applied with fervor to difficult questions.
“The courage, creativity and curiosity of these laureates inspire us and give us hope for the future of humankind,” the Nobel Foundation says.
At Nobel time, CSL reflects with pride on Emil von Behring, a past winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine and the namesake of one of its businesses, CSL Behring. Many decades after von Behring toiled in the lab, a new generation of CSL scientists are working to develop treatments for people with rare and serious diseases and to protect public health with vaccines. Just this month, CSL opened a new seven-story R&D campus in the city where von Behring worked long ago.
