Immunothrombosis in sepsis

Sepsis is a life-threatening condition that can occur following infection. Multicomponent host-pathogen interactions within the bloodstream contribute to the transition from local infection to the systemic dysregulation of the immune response in sepsis. Molecular and cellular events in the blood generate an immunothrombosis in sepsis. Our research is focused on characterizing these events using a unique combination of in-vitro functional profiling of pathogen activated blood cells with experimental modelling of sepsis in-vivo. We aim to discover and implement biomarker panels to guide diagnosis of sepsis and identify therapeutic targets to predict and prevent organ damage in sepsis.
