Welcome to the Strep Gene research project website. Thank you for your visit!

The project is a collaboration between Public Health England, Oxford University and Imperial College London. Researchers at these institutions are planning an exciting new programme of research to try and understand why some people develop severe streptococcal infections. We hope this will help us design better treatments or a preventative vaccine.

If you are living in the UK and you or someone you know was affected by a severe streptococcal infection or necrotising fasciitis, we would like you to consider taking part. To find out how, please tell us who suffered the illness:

The study is proud to be supported by The Lee Spark Necrotising Fasciitis Foundation - Registered Charity No. 1088094:
