About the organisation
Basic details : 'Action On Sepsis' is a research excellence cluster at the University of British Columbia. This is an interdisciplinary networks of researchers focused on solving the key challenge of sepsis that faces society and transcends the traditional boundaries.
Action on Sepsis will focus on three main themes, with each including several research directions. Each theme will bring together researchers exploring sepsis across the lifespan in both high- and low-resource settings to foster collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and cross-pollination.
- Prevention, population and public health
Mission : Our long-term goal is to become a centre for research excellence in sepsis. We aim to develop, evaluate and commercialize new sepsis therapeutics and provide evidence-based, practical recommendations that address medical, behavioural, and social issues impacting sepsis. We will provide this evidence to policy makers, health care professionals, global health organizations, and governments, thereby enabling them to transition cutting edge discoveries to real world implementation. In doing so, we want to increase knowledge of sepsis both locally and globally, applying lessons learned and sharing them in a collaborative exchange.
Vision : To contribute to the global fight against sepsis
