The Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort Study targets risk factors for progression of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease to provide researchers with new ways of understanding CKD.


On behalf of the Steering Committee, we are communicating with you about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) epidemic and its impact on the CRIC Study.

First, we want to assure you that the CRIC Investigators and NIH are carefully adapting CRIC Study activities to ensure, as much as we can, the health and well-being of our study participants and study staff. Therefore, we will be stopping in-person CRIC clinic visits for the time-being, until the epidemic lessens. For now, these changes will continue for the next 4 weeks, at which time we will re-evaluate whether we can resume in-clinic study visits. Participants who are due for an annual in-person study visit over the coming weeks may be contacted by CRIC Study staff to collect study data by telephone.

We will communicate with you regularly to keep you up to date about how we are continuing to respond to this epidemic.

What's New in CRIC

In the summer of 2018, the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study embarked on its fourth phase. During the next phase of the CRIC Study, we are excited to offer new innovative remote data technologies and resources such as:
  • The CRIC investigators are now utilizing novel mobile technologies to collect kidney and cardiovascular data from study participants in their homes and communities.
  • The CRIC Study has also launched a tool, CRIC DataView, that permits researchers to query CRIC Study data. CRICDataView.ORG
What's New icon The CRIC Study will offer, for the first time, small grant awards
through its CRIC Opportunity Pool Program.
Please see the Opportunity Pool page for more details.
