R-GNOSIS is coordinated by Marc Bonten (UMC Utrecht) and brings together a multidisciplinary team with complementary expertise of clinicians, microbiologists and epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists, caregivers in inpatient care and mathematical modellers. The R-GNOSIS consortium is made of 19 partners from 9 countries which include United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Switzerland and Israel.
The Madrid Health Service / Servicio Madrileño de Salud (SERMAS) is working together with the Foundation for Biomedical Research (Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica en el Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal) as a third party. The Ramón y Cajal University Hospital is a 1,300 bed public hospital that belongs to the National Institute of Health of the Madrid’s Community of Spain. The Department of Clinical Microbiology, the operational partner in the project, has a high publication rate (100 impact factor/year during the last 5 years) and is fully equipped with clinical diagnostic duties and molecular microbiology research (19 researchers) and participated in several EU projects (PAR, TROCAR, KBBE, ACE, DRESP, EAR, COBRA, DEAR, EVOTAR, and R-GNOSIS).
