The Childhood Leukemia International Consortium was established in 2007, building upon the wealth of data and biospecimens collected from case-control studies worldwide. CLIC pools information from studies all around the world to answer the big questions in childhood leukemia research. In 2017, CLIC expanded to other pediatric cancers to form the CLIC+ consortium. The primary goals of CLIC and CLIC+ are to share comparable epidemiologic and genetic data to enhance statistical power of analyses to investigate the contribution of pre- and post natal exposures leading to childhood cancers. CLIC and CLIC+ offer a platform to share expertise and ideas among researchers from different disciplines including epidemiologists, tumor biologists, geneticists, immunologists, clinicians, toxicologists, and statisticians.
