About Professor Heimburger
Professor Norbert Heimburger was an employee of CSL Behring for more than 30 years and devoted his work to blood coagulation. One of his major contributions in this area was the development of virus-safe plasma products based on pasteurization, a development that led CSL Behring to produce the world's first virus-inactivated factor VIII concentrate to treat hemophilia patients.
