The Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study (www.cricstudy.org ), established in 2001, is the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases' (NIDDK) largest and longest standing observational follow-up study of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The CRIC Study overarching goals are to improve the understanding of CKD and its associated morbidities including, but not limited to cardiovascular illness through the detailed follow-up of nearly 5,500 study participants.

To date, the CRIC Study has published on a wide array of topics relevant to the health and well-being of individuals with CKD, but many opportunities remain to leverage CRIC’s vast data resources for the purpose of gaining additional insights into the causes and consequences of CKD progression.
