Bozza’s research team activities involve clinical and translational research on severe emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. The investigations have focused on the long-term outcomes of severe infections, including the neuro-cognitive consequences of sepsis, malaria, and HIV. In recent years, he also worked in the consolidation of new collaborative initiatives of clinical research in Brazil and Latin America to fill the gaps of knowledge regarding the management of critically ill patients in developing countries and the development of large collaborative studies in these settings.
