Dr Ellie Karampini, a post-doctoral researcher at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, has received a CSL Behring Prof Heimburger Award.
She is the first researcher from Ireland to win one of the annual global awards, which bring a research grant of up to 20,000 Euros.
The award is named after Prof Norbert Heimburger, a CSL Behring employee for more than three decades who was a pioneer of modern blood coagulation therapy.
In his honour, CSL Behring created the Prof Heimburger Award global research grant to recognise the clinical and/or pre-clinical research of emerging coagulation specialists who are driven to improve the care of patients with bleeding disorders.
Dr Karampini, who was born and raised in Athens, Greece, gained her PhD in 2020 then moved to Ireland to join the James O’Donnell group at the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland.
She currently works as a senior post-doctoral researcher in the multi-national Zimmerman project studying the role of glycans in biosynthesis and secretion.
