Jethro Herberg is a Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Infectious Diseases working at St Mary’s Hospital, London and at Imperial College.
Host inflammatory responses are major contributors to disease pathophysiology, and analysis of host gene expression in different infection and inflammatory states can offer insights which may open the door to new therapies and diagnostic approaches.
At St Mary’s Hospital, London, Dr Herberg is recruiting children presenting with infections and inflammatory conditions to prospective, observational studies which aim to identify pathogen-specific signatures of gene and protein expression, and to identify pathways implicated in patients with severe disease.
