health professionals participate in research of chronic kidney disease

Research Collaborations

The Scientific and Data Coordinating Center at Penn receives data and provides ongoing support for a number of Ancillary Studies supported by the CRIC Cohort utilizing both CRIC study participants and biological samples obtained from CRIC study participants. Through the CRIC data sharing policy, investigators have an opportunity to tap into the rich CRIC data to pursue their own research goals.

For a list of currently ongoing CRIC ancillary studies, please contact cri-projmgmt@mail.med.upenn.edu. In addition to the CRIC Clinical Centers listed on the Participating Institutions page, collaborative research partnerships are currently conducted at a number of institutions across the country including, but not limited to, University of Utah, University of Miami, University of North Carolina, George Washington University, University of Alabama, as well as at international sites in China, Japan, Peru, and Germany.

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.
