Welcome to the US Shock Society!   

The mission of the Shock Society is to improve the care of victims of trauma, shock, and sepsis, through:
  • Promoting clinically relevant research into the basic biology of trauma, shock, and sepsis
  • Providing a multidisciplinary forum to integrate and disseminate new knowledge in trauma, shock, and sepsis
  • Promoting the education and mentoring of the next generation of investigators in the field of trauma, shock, and sepsis

We are excited to announce that we have packaged some key aspects of our Shock Annual Conference into a new virtual series that is FREE for our members. We will be offering the valuable content and networking opportunities that you are used to—all from the comfort of your own home.

About the Journal, SHOCK

SHOCK®: Injury, Inflammation, and Sepsis: Laboratory and Clinical Approaches includes studies of novel therapeutic approaches, such as immunomodulation, gene therapy, nutrition, and others. The mission of the Journal is to foster and promote multidisciplinary studies, both experimental and clinical in nature, that critically examine the etiology, mechanisms and novel therapeutics of shock-related pathophysiological conditions. Its purpose is to excel as a vehicle for timely publication in the areas of basic and clinical studies of shock, trauma, sepsis, inflammation, ischemia, and related pathobiological states, with particular emphasis on the biologic mechanisms that determine the response to such injury. Making such information available will ultimately facilitate improved care of the traumatized or septic individual.
