Education and training as well as the promotion of young talent have always been of great importance to CSL Behring. We are therefore particularly pleased that funding prizes such as the CSL Behring Prize for the three best Master's degrees in Biomedical Sciences could be awarded.
We thank and congratulate the award winners for their valuable scientific commitment. Unfortunately, due to due to the ongoing, exceptional circumstances, the awards could not be presented in person. However, the three winners each sent us a photo and a short statement in response to the question "What does the prize mean to you?".
"The icing on the cake"
"For me, the CSL Behring Prize means recognition for my work, perseverance and diligence over the past five years" said 1st prize winner Laura Leuenberger. And 2nd place winner Sofie von Känel said: "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." Last but not least, this is what Jasmin Meier (3rd place) added: "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."
