health professionals participate in research of chronic kidney disease

Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study Opportunity Pool Program

The CRIC Opportunity Pool Program was established in 2018 with the overarching goal to engage the broader research community, including investigators who have not previously worked on CKD epidemiology as well as those from outside of the field of nephrology, in novel investigations involving CRIC participant data.

Funding Opportunity Announcements were released in 2018, 2019 and 2021.

The CRIC Opportunity Pool Program is not currently accepting applications.

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.

CRIC Collaborations

The CRIC Scientific and Data Coordinating Center at Penn receives data and provides ongoing support for a number of Ancillary Studies approved by the CRIC Cohort utilizing both data collected about CRIC study participants as well as their biological samples.
