NRW Project SepsisDataNet.NRW: Personalised Treatment of Sepsis

The Medical Proteome Center is part of the consortium SepsisDataNet.NRW and is working in central work packages with the topics Proteomics mass spectrometry and Bioinformatics. Aim of the 'Leitmarktagentur NRW / EFRE.NRW"-funded consortium SepsisDataNet.NRW - with participation of the two NRW companies AYYOXA GmbH and KAIROS GmbH - is the development of a sepsis bioassay and a decision support modul to treat sepsis patients in a personalised manner and to decrease the high letality of sepsis.
