The Research Projects Directory includes information about all projects that currently exist in the Researcher Workbench to help provide transparency about how the Workbench is being used. Each project specifies whether Registered Tier or Controlled Tier data are used.

Note: Researcher Workbench users provide information about their research projects independently. Views expressed in the Research Projects Directory belong to the relevant users and do not necessarily represent those of the All of Us Research Program. Information in the Research Projects Directory is also cross-posted on AllofUs.nih.gov in compliance with the 21st Century Cures Act.

Scientific Questions Being Studied

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality as well as a poorer quality of life. The main AF symptoms are fatigue, decreased exercise tolerance, short of breath, and rapid heart rates. These symptoms lead to deceased quality of life. We seek to understand the specific effect of physical activities (duration, frequency, step down) on the frequency and severity of AF symptoms, heart rate control, sleep quality, and overall health in AF patients.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (atrial fibrillation)

Scientific Approaches

All of Us data include 50% of racial and ethnic minorities and 80% of underrepresented populations in biomedical research. We plan to use machine learning technology to identify the characteristics of subpopulations.

Anticipated Findings

Analyzing data in the All of Us cohort would provide a unique opportunity to understand the health burden of patients living with AF in a broader context. This effort supports the need for rethinking AF across races and ethnicities and enable the development of effective tailored interventions for the specific racial/ethnic groups.
