The Roger-Bone-Prize for clinical sepsis research, selected by the German Sepsis Society, is awarded every year to young scientists from German speaking countries. CytoSorbents Europe is happy to once again support this research prize. We congratulate Dr. Christian Scheer from the Anesthesiology Clinic, Greifswald University hospital (Germany), who received the Roger-Bone-Prize 2017 during the 2017 Sepsis Update Congress in Weimar for his publication „Quality improvement initiative for severe sepsis and septic shock reduces 90-day mortality: A 7.5-year observational study“ (Crit Care Med 2017; 45(2):241-252).
