The Childhood Life-Threatening Infectious Disease Study (EUCLIDS) was a €12 million project funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) that ran from 2011 to 2017 and included 14 partners institutions across 6 countries.

The project aimed to undertake a large-scale genomic study to identify the genes, and biological pathways they control, which determine susceptibility and severity in life-threatening bacterial infections of childhood in Europe and globally.

Detailed information on the deliverables and publications produced as part of the EUCLIDS project can be found on the project’s CORDIS page.
