Historical Heritage of the Behring Campus Eystrup

The significance of antibodies, immunology, and serum proteins has endured since the era of Emil von Behring, a German physiologist who received the 1901 Nobel Prize in Physiology. In 1900 Emil von Behring introduced serum from immune horses as a method to cure and prevent diphtheria, one of the most feared infectious diseases throughout history. He was widely referred to as a “saviour of children”, as diphtheria used to be a leading cause of child mortality. Von Behring’s legacy endures as a testament to the transformative power of animal immunology and immunotherapy R&D. In Eystrup, the Behringwerke has been manufacturing veterinary and diagnostic products since the early 1920s. Today, the Behring Campus Eystrup is striving to build on this past legacy and success and help further the development of novel antibody therapeutics, next-generation immunotherapies, veterinary medicine, and immunodiagnostics.
