    Event description

    CSL is known as a leading global biotechnology company born & bred in Australia...

    Established in 1916, CSL boasts a diverse portfolio of life-saving medications. From those that treat haemophilia and immune deficiencies to therapies in iron deficiency, dialysis and nephrology, their medications are provided to patients in over 100 countries.
