dedicated to finding New solutions for sepsis

The UF Sepsis and Critical Illness Research Center (SCIRC) is the first of its kind in the nation and studies long-term outcomes in patients treated for sepsis in the UF Health Shands Hospital’s surgical and trauma intensive care units. With a focus on innovation, collaboration, and academic excellence, the center aims to address some of the most pressing challenges facing society. We are a diverse team of researchers and scholars who work tirelessly to push the boundaries of knowledge and drive positive change. Our goals is to develop clinical solutions for sepsis, as well as illnesses that stem from it and their enduring effects.
