Investment in our R&D

Investment in R&D is an important driver for CSL Behring’s future growth. We have a high quality and potentially valuable portfolio of projects in various stages of development. We continue to make a balanced investment in the life cycle management and market development of existing products that bring short to mid-term commercial benefits, and we make strategic investments in longer term, higher risk and high opportunity new product development activities.

We operate as one integrated global research and development organization that assembles coordinated global project teams, drawing together staff from different countries depending on their expertise.
