Dr Herberg's research focuses on the discovery and clinical translation of host biomarkers for febrile children with infectious and inflammatory conditions. Current projects include the EUCLIDS study (www.euclids-project.eu), which investigates genetic predisposition to severe sepsis, and the PERFORM study (www.perform2020.eu), which aims to validate identified host RNA and protein biomarkers of bacterial, viral and inflammatory illness in a large study of febrile children.
