I am a researcher within the Systems Biology Research Centre and focus on Infection biology and Sepsis. Sepsis is serious medical condition characterized by a whole-body inflammatory state, termed systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), and the presence of an infection. Despite of the development in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, sepsis remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early recognition and treatment of sepsis is crucial to improve outcomes and reduce sepsis-related mortality. Ongoing research projects are 1) Development of sepsis diagnosis system 2) Biomarkers in clinical diagnosis and 3) SMARTDIAGNOS - rapid detection of sepsis.
