University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) , TAmiRNA GmbH & Vivomicx BV announce their collaboration to unmask the molecular signature of sepsis induced multi organ failure.
UMCG, TAmiRNA, and Vivomicx today announced their collaboration to unmask the molecular signature of sepsis induced multi organ failure and shed light on diagnosis and therapeutic options. Sepsis is the body’s response to infection. Sepsis kills and disables millions of patients worldwide. The role of the microvasculature in all organs has been identified as central, yet understudied in the pathophysiology leading to Multi Organ Failure (MOF) in critically ill patients with sepsis. This translational project combines cutting edge molecular research at the level of kinome, gene expression, and microRNome in samples of patients who suffered from sepsis and of animal models of this disease. In both human and mouse lungs and kidneys we will enrich the samples [...]
