The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine has been awarded a five-year, $34 million grant to help the Naval Medical Logistics Command perform clinical research for treating sepsis.
HJF will work with Duke University, George Mason University, University of Washington and Makerere University Walter Reed Project in Uganda to diagnose and handle patients with the blood condition, HJF said Wednesday.
John Lowe, HJF president and CEO, said the foundation aims to help further research into sepsis through its international military medical research program services work.
The foundation has also partnered with The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Naval Medical Research Unit 2 in Cambodia for the Austere environments Consortium for Enhanced Sepsis Outcomes program.
That agreement is for a controlled clinical management trial in Uganda and observational studies of sepsis patients in Cambodia and U.S. military facilities.
