The Center for Sepsis Control & Care (CSCC) is a Center at the Jena University Hospital (JUH) and coordinates the JUH’s activities connected to the focus research area Sepsis and Infection. The CSCC supports interdisciplinary networks of patient-oriented basic research and clinical research in the areas of sepsis and difficult-to-treat infections. In doing so, the CSCC facilitates open and broad scientific exchange and promotes training and career support for young researchers, in particular clinician scientists.
The Center for Sepsis Control and Care was founded in 2010 as one of Germany-wide eight „Integrated Research and Treatment Centers“ that were funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) for ten years.
The mission and aims of the CSCC comprise organization and management of the core research area Sepsis and Infection at the JUH, structured training of junior scientists and support of career development as well as improved sepsis and infection care. Not least, the Center aims to improve information and education of the general public regarding life-threatening infections and sepsis.
