CSL Behring Coagulation Research Award-Prof Heimburger Award

Created: 21/6/2010
Updated: 21/6/2010

Prof. Heimburger Award Research Grant - Coagulation

CSL Behring is committed to supporting progress in the area of coagulation. Based on recent publications and feedback from the medical community, allowing the next generation of coagulation specialists to medically and scientifically establish themselves, it is important to ensure continued progress in this therapeutic area. CSL Behring will fund a fourth cycle of a global grant programme to support the above objective.

Prof. Dr. Norbert Heimburger

Professor Dr. Norbert Heimburger, a CSL Behring employee for over three decades, devoted his work to blood coagulation. During that time, he characterised and purified a large number of plasma proteins and was instrumental in making these available to the medical community as therapeutic options. One of his major contributions in this area was the development of virus-inactivated products based on pasteurisation. Due to his determination and his constant interaction with leading haemophilia and coagulation specialists, Behring launched the first effectively virus-inactivated FVIII concentrate in 1981. Professor Dr. Heimburger, honoured with the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1991, retired in 1991 but was still very much involved with CSL Behring as a Scientific Advisor until he passed away in September 2006.

Grant Details & Eligibility

CSL Behring will set up 5 global start-up grants of 20,000 euros each for the 2011 cycle. The grants are targeted at young investigators, who hold a medical degree. Applicants with less than 5 years experience in haemostasis will be preferred. No matching funding is a prerequisite for this grant. The grants will be available for clinical and/or preclinical research in the area of coagulation.
