The final act of the second edition of the Research award in the Plasma and Plasma-Derived Drugs field dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. Fabrizio Fabbrizzi, who passed away in early 2020, was held yesterday at the Lucca Campus Foundation.

The initiative, promoted by the Carlo Erba Foundation and supported by Kedrion, aims to support new generations of researchers in the scientific field and at the same time pay tribute to a person whom many remember as a remarkable physician, scholar and manager.

“Fabrizio dedicated his life to helping others,” Kedrion’s President Paolo Marcucci remembered, ” working with great energy and passion, both as a physician and as a researcher. His passion for albumin, which he called the ‘Queen of Plasma Derivatives,’ was a constant feature of his work. Recent developments and the opportunities that this therapy will have worldwide in the future demonstrate the foresight and intelligence of Fabrizio’s professional choices. We are delighted that Kedrion – along with the research prizes dedicated to Kedrion’s founder, our father Guelfo Marcucci – will support the studies of young researchers interested in plasma proteins. We will continue to support the Carlo Erba Foundation with these research prizes in the coming years.”

The winner of this second edition is Aida Cavallo, a doctoral student in Translational Medicine at the Institute of Life Sciences of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, Italy, who presented the project entitled “Therapeutic use of plasma proteins in the healing of chronic skin lesions.”

The ceremony was attended by members of Dr. Fabbrizzi’s family, as well as many Kedrion colleagues, physicians, and other friends and acquaintances.
