Clinical programs

Our Clinical Programs

We are using our expertise to fight Highly Hazardous Communicable Diseases where they start and save lives around the world and at home. The Global Center for Health Security is creating a network to prepare for and respond to high-consequence infections. This work includes a clinical trials network and rapid exchange of information during international pandemics, as well as  improving the treatment and survival of sepsis in African and Asia.

Global Infectious Disease Preparedness Network

The Global Center for Health Security partners with institutions with high-level isolation units in Singapore, Germany, South Korea and China – with more to come – in order to develop a clinical trials network, clinical response force, and ensure a rapid exchange of information and resources during a pandemic outbreak of a Highly Hazardous Communicable Disease. The expertise and resources shared will help contribute to local and worldwide health system and public health preparedness.

Austere Environment Consortium for Enhanced Sepsis Outcomes

We’re part of a multi-national, multidisciplinary team composed of military and academic institutions in the U.S., Uganda, and Ghana, with clinical research sites in Africa and Asia. The consortium works to improve treatment and survival for sepsis patients under resource-limited conditions. 

Nebraska Regional Disaster Health Response Ecosystem

One of two demonstration projects nationwide charged by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, the Nebraska Regional Disaster Health Response Ecosystem (NRDHRE) utilizes Nebraska Medicine’s and UNMC's expertise and outreach in order to grow a grassroots readiness network. During a Disease X or special pathogens outbreak, NRDHRE ideally will have established a flexible, self-organizing response ecosystem.
