  • Examine current strategies and next-generation targeted therapies to patient immune phenotype in sepsis
  • Recognize the current state of the science and future directions in the relevance of sepsis immune phenotype and potential diagnostic modalities including monocyte phenotyping with HLA-DR expression and IFN-G production with flow cytometry and ELISPOT
  • Discuss future directions for current research in immunoadjuvant therapies (checkpoint inhibitors, IL-7, IL-8, IL-10), pathogen-specific therapies (vaccines, antimicrobials), and immune dysregulation modifying agents as therapeutic targets (anti-heme, anti-hb)
