What's New in SHOCK, November 2019?

The November 2019 issue of Shock is once again jam-packed with excellent research that encompasses all aspects of the shock research arena. As usual there are both clinically based and basic science-based manuscripts featured this month, and these manuscripts were submitted by investigators from across the world. The exciting findings showcased in this issue cover everything from sepsis, septic shock, and immune responses to bacteria, to work elucidating mechanisms of inflammation in burns, ischemia reperfusion, hemorrhagic shock, and acute pancreatitis. There will definitely be something to capture your interest this month!   Read more...

***Important Update on NIGMS priorities for Sepsis Research***

We would like to make you aware of recent changes by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) in the area of scientific interest related to its portfolio of sepsis research support. These changes are in response to recommendations from a NIGMS advisory council working group on sepsis.
  • Consistent with its mission, NIGMS intends to continue its support of fundamental discovery science that is relevant to understanding the mechanisms associated with the pathogenesis and resolution of sepsis in humans, with the aim to develop future therapeutic strategies.  However, NIGMS will be making a concerted effort to prioritize clinical research studies that utilize data and materials obtained from septic patients.  Specific topics of research interest are outlined in NOT GM 19-054.
 Among other areas, NIGMS will place added emphasis on:
  • Research that is patient-based, or utilizes clinical information from humans who develop the condition of sepsis;
  • Research which capitalizes on computational models and informatics, including machine learning and AI;
  • Studies that utilize non-traditional research organisms as models for understanding sepsis; and
  • Exploratory research that fits our technology development programs, leading to the ability to predict and diagnose sepsis.
For more information, please refer to NIGMS Priorities for Sepsis Research (NOT GM 19-054). Please note: Two specific areas (rodent models and clinical trials) will receive low priority for funding consideration.  If your research program is dependent on rodent models of sepsis, you are encouraged to discuss NIGMS Priorities for Sepsis Research with Dr. Sarah Dunsmore.
