Three researchers just starting out in biomedical science recently received the CSL Behring Prize. The top students are pursuing master’s degrees at the University of Bern.
CSL Behring congratulates the winners and looks forward to the contributions they’ll make to improve the well-being of patients. Because the event couldn’t be held in person, the three women offered a word of thanks.
"For me, the CSL Behring Prize means recognition for my work, perseverance and diligence over the past five years."
Laura Leuenberger, 1st place
"For me, the CSL Behring Prize means a sign of the potential of interdisciplinary medical research in general and thereby for me personally an incentive to continue to follow my curiosity and trust my abilities."
Sofie von Känel, 2nd place
"As a young scientist, it fills me with joy to see that we are of interest, that we are appreciated and promoted by a renowned company like CSL Behring. It was not only because of the prize that it was worth investing the many hours in the studies of biomedical sciences. I was able to pursue my interests and immerse myself in the fascinating world of life sciences. To be awarded the CSL Behring Prize for this makes me very proud. Thank you to CSL Behring for the icing on the cake."
