The All of Us Research Program is building one of the largest biomedical resources of its kind to explore how lifestyle, environment, and biological makeup affect health and disease. When it's available, researchers will be able to use the diverse data here to explore a wide range of biomedical and scientific hypotheses.
The All of Us Research Program aims to engage a community of one million or more volunteers who reflect the diversity of America, including many people who haven’t taken part in medical research before. We welcome participants both healthy and sick, of all backgrounds and walks of life, from all regions across the country.
Participants answer surveys about their health, lifestyle, and environment. Some participants will also contribute physical measurements, biosamples (blood and urine), their Electronic Health Record (EHR), and more. Taken together, these data give the program the scale and scope to enable research for most common diseases, as well as many rare conditions, and may help increase our understanding of healthy states.
We believe researchers and participants should have broad access to data. We encourage researchers to sign up as All of Us participants, too. And we are committed to building meaningful partnerships with our participants, ensuring that the program reflects the needs and values of researchers and participants alike. This includes making participants’ information available to them, so they can learn more about their health and All of Us discoveries over time.
Approved researchers will be able to access these data, with personal identifiers removed, to explore how different factors — like lifestyle, environment, and genes — contribute to individual health. Their studies may lead to new insights and help develop treatments and prevention strategies that are unique to individuals, enabling a future of precision medicine for all of us.
Participant trust and privacy must be protected. Personal identifiers are removed from the data. Researchers must register with the program and be approved to access specific types of data. If approved, researchers must agree to follow strict rules regarding data usage, privacy, and security.
When can I register and request access to the data?
The first version of the All of Us Research Program dataset and first set of researcher tools is expected in 2019. You can then request access to the data you want to explore.
Who can apply?
Researchers can come from academic, commercial, public, or private institutions. Citizen scientists are welcome, too.
To be considered for approval, researchers must agree to the All of Us Research Program’s rules on accessing data, keeping data safe, and using data properly. Please check back for more information.
