Next week, the Nobel Prizes will celebrate scientists who made breakthrough discoveries worthy of global attention. Before the new winners are announced, we’re sharing a one-minute video about Emil von Behring, namesake of CSL Behring. The biotech company is part of CSL, which has 25,000 employees around the world.
A German scientist born in 1854, von Behring pioneered serum technology with a treatment for the deadly childhood disease diphtheria. Today, CSL Behring researches and manufactures treatments for rare and serious diseases. The company continues to have a big footprint in Marburg, Germany, where von Behring once worked and now home to a new, seven-story R&D facility to open in 2022.
This year’s Nobel Prize for Medicine will be announced on Monday, October 4.
