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.

We are accepting applications to fund innovative studies to develop, evaluate, or implement novel analyses, including novel and integrative analytic methods, using existing CRIC Study participant data, led by investigators in any scientific or clinical discipline, including but not limited to public health researchers, biostatisticians, informatics scientists, etc.

Applications for studies that address topic areas not fully explored in prior CRIC investigations and that promise significant potential health impact are strongly encouraged.

Please refer to the Opportunity Pool Program announcement (see link below) for further details. A list of existing publications and funded ancillary studies can be found at our "Collaborate with CRIC Study" web page.

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.
