Sepsis: critical care’s most wanted
Dr. Tom van der Poll heads a large research group in Amsterdam, with two major areas of research focus: sepsis (and its major cause pneumonia) and tuberculosis. Both of his areas of research study the innate immune response, particularly focusing on pattern recognition receptors and on the regulation of the procoagulant response. His research seeks to combine observational studies in patients with preclinical and fundamental studies in healthy volunteers and experimental animals to further gain instight on spesis and its causes.
