The Research Committee of the Neonatal Kidney Collaborative welcomes proposals for SECONDARY STUDIES utilizing data collected for the AWAKEN study.  There is a considerable amount of data available on more than 2000 NICU patients of all gestational ages, with a wide variety of diagnoses.

To facilitate the development of proposals, we are making available to all NKC members, here on the NKC web page, the CRFs used to collect data extracted from neonates’ medical records.  The Manual of Procedures and the data dictionary are available upon request

Those interested in pursuing a secondary study should use the proposal template, also posted on the webpage.  Jennifer Charlton, MD ( and Ronnie Guillet, MD, PhD ( are available for questions and additional guidance.
