GenOMICC in the United Kingdom

GenOMICC is eligibly funded for the NIHR portfolio. GenOMICC is funded by the Fiona Elizabeth Agnew Trust, the Wellcome Trust, and the Intensive Care Society.

The study recruits patients who were previously in good health (not functionally limited by chronic disease) and have been admitted to an HDU or ICU with sepsis caused by specific organisms, flu, pancreatitis or burns (see full entry criteria here ).

Recruitment requires consent, a single DNA sample (blood or saliva) and a short online CRF (see full recruitment procedures here ). All recruits count as accruals through the NIHR system.
