I am a member of the WHO’s sepsis group within the Integrated Management of Acute Illness programme, developing best practice guidance for resource-limited environments.
I was a member of the Executive Committee of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (2003-9) developing best practice guidance in the management of patients with severe sepsis and septic shock.
I am one the lead investigators in a collaborative group studying the genetics of sepsis (GenOSept) which has been awarded a grant of Eur 2.1M by the FP6 programme (2004-8)
I am the senior clinical lead for the DoH-funded NPSA’s ‘Matching Michigan’ project to minimise blood stream infections linked to the use of central vennous catheters.
I am collaborating in a range of clinical projects focussed on improving the management of patients with sepsis, and acutely ill patients in general, to enhance reliable delivery of best practice care.
