I’m often asked, “What makes CSL Behring a great place to work?” For me, it’s about our patient centricity and company purpose. We develop and deliver innovative specialty biotherapies, helping people with life-threatening conditions live full lives. That’s an inspiring responsibility. Our CEO Paul Perreault encourages us to work each day as if people’s lives depend on us ‒ because they do. I can’t think of a better reason for coming to work every day.
If we focus on innovation and sustainability, healthcare will evolve in ways that are in sync with the changing needs of patients, the economy and global politics.
The following post is excerpted from Paul Perreault’s remarks at International BioFest 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

Healthcare statisticians tell us that the first person who will live to 150 years of age has already been born. Considering human biology and the challenges we would need to overcome, doubling our life expectancy at first seems fanciful. But with our understanding of science and the refined art of personalized medicine, 150 may be reasonable.
In fact, our understanding of human biology is expanding at an exponential rate. Ten years ago it took the world’s greatest minds 10 years to map the human genome. Now it takes one day. Even for those of us in the healthcare sector, it is virtually impossible to predict what healthcare will look like in 50 or 100 years. But there are constants to guide us.

The U.S.-Australia Free Trade Agreement (FTA) has fostered substantial international trade in the ten years since it was forged between the two countries. The FTA is particularly significant for life sciences companies such as CSL Behring because it provides greatly expanded markets for products and patient care, and helps drive innovation.

Some of the policies covered in the FTA that sustain investments in innovation were highlighted today at Opportunity Australia 2015. The event was held in Philadelphia to mark the tenth anniversary of the agreement. John Berry, U.S. Ambassador to Australia participated in the event, which was hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce in Australia.
