Role within ImmunoSep
The AMC will be one of the centres where the proof-of-concept clinical trial of personalised immunotherapy in sepsis will be performed. Also, we will take part in the development of the theranostics platform, which will be based on a multidimensional systems biology analysis of omics-based data sets, to identify clinically relevant biomarkers and therapeutic targets for future precision medicine in sepsis.
