Biodetection & Sepsis Control

IMPROVING CAPABILITIES IN THE DETECTION AND THERAPY OF SERIOUS INFECTIONS IN INDIVIDUALS AND THE POPULATION

Naturally occurring infectious diseases and bioterrorism emergencies have the potential to cause shock- and sepsis-related fatalities. The ability to screen people efficiently for a wide variety of infections could significantly limit the devastating impact of an epidemic or bioterrorism incident on civilian or soldier populations.

CIMIT’s Biodetection & Sepsis Control Program leverages CIMIT’s extensive network of academic institutions and government agencies to develop novel technologies capable of detecting infection, screening antigens or developing vaccines.
