UF Health granted $12 million to establish comprehensive sepsis research center

University of Florida Health has been awarded a $12 million, five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to create a one-of-a-kind center to help generate treatments and prevention strategies for one of the most devastating issues critically ill patients face.

The Sepsis and Critical Illness Research Center, the first of its kind in the nation, will study long-term outcomes in patients treated for sepsis in the surgical and trauma intensive care units at UF Health Shands Hospital, with the goal of developing clinical solutions for sepsis as well as illnesses that stem from it and their enduring, dismal effects.
