Join the HJF Team!
HJF is seeking an Adjudicator to review patient charts from an ongoing international clinical study program with the Austere environments Consortium for Enhanced Sepsis Outcomes (ACESO) located in Bethesda, Maryland. HJF provides scientific and program support services to ACESO. Although this position is based out of our Rockledge Bethesda office, there is capability to work remotely.
ACESO is an international team of investigators headquartered at the Naval Medical Research Center (NMRC) and comprised of DoD, non-profit, and academic partners. ACESO is dedicated to improving survival of patients with severe infections in resource-constrained environments. Founded in 2013, ACESO implements a coordinated program of research aimed at improving prevention, early recognition, diagnosis, and effective treatment of sepsis from all causes in austere environments. Particular attention focuses on infections that currently have no specific therapies or present unique risks to the US military or global health security.
In late 2015 a new branch of the ACESO program was initiated as a collaboration between the U.S. Military HIV Research Program (MHRP) at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Walter Reed Program-Nigeria, Naval Medical Research Unit 3-Ghana Detachment, HJF Inc., and other military, government and academic institutions, including the Sabeti lab at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, the African Center of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases (ACEGID) in Nigeria, the Liberian Institute for Biomedical Research (LIBR), and the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, Ghana. These partners build upon existing programs in Nigeria, Ghana and Liberia with initiatives focused on lab and clinical strengthening, biosurveillance and countermeasure development.
The purpose of adjudication is to review all available data for the study participants and determine if underlying process is infectious in origin and determine confidence level in pathogen identification.
