Prof. Tom van der Poll, PhD will talk about “Coagulation in sepsis and COVID-19”. The research headed by Tom van der Poll has a strong translational character with sepsis (and its major cause pneumonia) as the main topic. Focus lies on the innate immune response, in particular pattern recognition receptors, and on the regulation of the procoagulant response. The Key objective is to determine the mechanisms by which the innate immune and procoagulant responses to infection are initiated and subsequently regulated.
