About This Project
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition in which the body's immune response to infection injures its own tissues and organs. It is the number one cause of death in the critical care unit. To provide more effective treatment, it is crucial that we understand which cells and signals play a role in the immune response to infectious stimuli in sepsis. Our research is furthering this understanding and utilizing these findings to identify new treatments.
