ISARIC’s global position is to work with the World Health Organization (WHO) on a data collection tool to ensure international standardised data collection, should it be required.

Sites are invited to collaborate with the Genetics of Mortality in Critical Care (GenOMICC) studyan ISARIC Member, which is recruiting cases of severe acute hepatitis of unknown origin in children, to understand the genetic mechanisms of susceptibility and to prioritise therapeutic targets.
