CSL Behring Seeks Proposals for the Third Annual Interlaken Leadership Awards
- Global Awards Program Funds Innovative Research in Neuroimmunology
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pennsylvania, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to improving the quality of life for people with rare and serious diseases, CSL Behring is calling for proposals for the 2013 Interlaken Leadership Awards. Established in 2010, this annual global awards program provides monetary grants and/or product supply to advance medical research and knowledge about the potential role of immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy in the treatment of neurological disorders.
"Performing daily activities can be extremely difficult for those living with a neurological disorder, and at times, the condition can even be debilitating," said Jeffrey Baggish, M.D., Director of Medical Affairs, Immunology & Pulmonary at CSL Behring. "We established the Interlaken Leadership Awards to fund innovative research that may improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with a neurological condition."
To date, the Interlaken Leadership Awards has provided $2 million in grants to research studying Ig therapy in areas such as neuromyelitis optica (NMO), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), acute ischemic stroke, paraneoplastic syndromes, and autoimmune peripheral neuropathies.
Proposal Submission Process and Eligibility
Any individual actively engaged in clinical or basic research of polyvalent immunoglobulins for neurological conditions is eligible for the Interlaken Leadership Awards.
