Center for Sepsis Control and Care (CSCC)
The Center for Sepsis Control & Care (CSCC) is one of eight Integrated Research and Treatment Centers funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF). The CSCC is an institution at the Jena University Hospital (JUH) and addresses sepsis research covering all aspects of the disease and its sequelae. Topics include risk assessment, prevention, and acute care as well as long-term sequelae and rehabilitation.
The CSCC strives to
- reduce the burden of sepsis by improving diagnostics and treatment
- develop attractive career prospects in clinical research, and
- establish an optimal environment for excellent
- clinical research.
Every 3rd heartbeat someone dies of sepsis. In the developing world, sepsis accounts for 60-80% of lost lives in childhood. Those who survive, adults and children, often struggle with life. We support the goal to reduce sepsis incidence by 20% by 2020.
