«With hardly any face-to-face lectures, let alone diploma celebrations possible throughout the past two years due to the pandemic, it was sometimes difficult to keep up the spirit”, said Laurent Gueissaz (23). “At times it seemed as if hardly anyone would notice the effort we were putting into our studies. The invitation by CSL Behring to come on-site to receive the Biomedical Science Award therefore is a very welcome sign of appreciation».
Very welcome, but also very much deserved: Laurent Gueissaz and his fellow students and Kaitlyn Berchier (both 24) were awarded for their outstanding grades and achievements during their Life Science studies at the university of Bern. In their master’s theses, Laurent studied sport-induced cardiac disease in zebrafish, Caroline specialized in CAR T cells in pediatric cancer, and Kaitlyn in acute myeloid leukemia. “With the award, not only our personal achievements but also life sciences in general receive greater visibility”, said Caroline Piccand.
And Kaitlyn Berchier added: “It is a good feeling when your accomplishments are recognized by a big company such as CSL Behring; it is certainly a motivation to continue the scientific path we have chosen.”
On Wednesday 30 March 2022, Nathan Roth, Vice President of Plasma Product Development CSL Behring, welcomed the three awardees of the Biomedical Science Awards on site Wankdorf to congratulate them in person to their accomplishments and to have a casual chat about their future professional plans and aspirations.
