Professor Heimburger Award

Celebrating Science

Professor Dr. Norbert Heimburger, a CSL Behring employee for over three decades, was a pioneer of modern coagulation therapy. Among his many achievements, Prof. Dr. Heimburger developed virus-safe plasma products based on pasteurization, including launching the first effectively virus-inactivated FVIII concentrate in 1981.

In his honor, CSL Behring created the Heimburger Award to recognize the clinical and/or preclinical research of emerging coagulation specialists who are driven to improve the care of patients with bleeding disorders. Read our newsletter.
