In the last three years we have used your money to fund £60,000 of sepsis research.

  • One of our most important funding projects is work in Glasgow to better define how many people contract sepsis and what happens to them.
  • Other funding projects include the Defining Sepsis on the Wards study in England and Wales on detecting sepsis in hospitalised patients and projects in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Pakistan looking at improving speed of diagnosis in women and their babies around the time of their birth.
  • We also have a current funding partnership with Professor Kenny Baillie at the University of Edinburgh. Our funding allows for the storage of DNA samples from patients with sepsis.  We fund two student led summer projects in sepsis research and funding a specialist coordinator to ensure our global partnerships and collaborations obtain the necessary ethical and institutional approvals.
