Background and activities

I'm the research coordinator for the Geminicenter for Sepsis Research. Our goal is to reduce the morbidity and mortality of sepsis by improving diagnostics, treatment and follow-up of sepsis survivors. The center hosts clinicians, microbiologists, epidemiologists, engineers and statisticians. My background is in molecular medicine and cell biology. My own research focus on host and pathogen risk factors for sepsis in cancer patients and especially the risk of infection after prostate cancer biopsy.
