health professionals participate in research of chronic kidney disease


The overarching goal of the new CRIC Opportunity Pool Program (CRIC OPP) is to engage the broader research community, including investigators who have not previously worked in the area of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) epidemiology as well as those from outside the field of nephrology, in novel investigations involving CRIC participant data.

The Chronic Renal Insufficiencey Cohort Study Opportunity Pool Program is no longer accepting letters of intent for the 2019 offering. Please check back in 2020 for the next offering.

CRIC Scientific Discoveries

FGF23 elevation has been linked to greater risks of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), but whether these risks represent causal effects of FGF23 is unknown. Here, we report that elevated FGF23 levels are independently associated with prevalent and incident LVH among CRIC Study participants.
