The Kick-off meeting of the KFO342 started with a keynote lecture by Prof. Peter Pickkers from Radboud University Nijmegen/Netherlands on the topic of „Immune System in Sepsis: The forgotten organ as a treatment target“. Prof. Pickkers’ research focuses on pharmacological modulation of the innate immune response in translational models and critically ill patients, and the consequences for organ function.
Due to the Corona pandemic we couldn’t meet him in person, but we were escpecially happy that he could still give his speech by a video conference! The meeting was complemented by two talks from the KFO342 projects.
Thanks to all speakers!
