Abstract
Sepsis kills more people than car accidents, breast cancer, and bowel cancer combined.\ud The key areas integral for ensuring improvements in the care of sepsis patients include\ud improved risk stratification, better microorganism identification techniques, and a\ud reduction in the burden of second-hit nosocomial infections. This work addresses each\ud of these key areas in turn, with the ultimate aim of improving patient care through\ud applied translation research.\ud Firstly, this work will combine small-scale yet complex immunological data with new\ud statistical modelling techniques to form a new approach to microbe identification based\ud on “immune fing...
