Childhood Liver Disease Research and Education Network

Acronym: ChiLDREN NIDDK Contact: Averell Sherker Principal Investigator(s): Not Available


The overall goal of ChiLDREN is to establish a database of clinical information and serum and tissue samples from children across the United States and Canada with Biliary Atresia, Idiopathic Neonatal Hepatitis, Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease, Alagille Syndrome, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, Bile Acid Synthesis Defects, Mitochondrial Hepatopathies, and Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis in order to facilitate research and to perform clinical, epidemiological, and therapeutic trials in these important pediatric liver diseases. Three NIDDK-funded consortia, Biliary Atresia Research Consortium (BARC), Cholestatic Liver Disease Consortium (CLiC), and the Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease (CFLD) Network were consolidated to form ChiLDREN.
