Friedrich Schiller University Jena
- ZIK Septomics

The Centre for Innovation Competence (ZIK) Septomics is a cross-faculty research centre of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, associated with the University Hospital Jena and the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute. We conduct sepsis and infection research combining interdisciplinary systems biology basic research with clinical and translational research. Using this approach, we aim to overcome the persistent stagnation in the diagnosis and therapy of sepsis and severe infections by means of improved molecular understanding.

The Septomics centre consists of the 4 research groups Fungal Septomics, Host Fungal Interfaces, Host Septomics und Translational Septomics.
