Sepsis is the result of an overwhelming and life threatening response to an infection that can lead to tissue damage, organ failure and death. With an estimated 30 million cases annually worldwide, and a mortality rate of 20%, more than 6 million people succumb to sepsis each year. Sepsis is a global health problem as defined in a 2017 resolution from the WHO.

SEBRA is an interdisciplinary research environment that aims to contribute to enhanced understandling of the underlying mechanisms in sepsis and contribute to the development of novel preventive, diagnostic, and treatment startegies for sepsis.
