Identify risk factors for certain diseases.
The mission of the All of Us Research Program is simple. We want to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. To do this, we’re asking one million people to lead the way to provide the types of information that can help us create individualized prevention, treatment, and care for all of us.
What Does This Mean?
We are creating a research community of one million people who will share their unique health data. This will include answering survey questions and sharing electronic health records (EHR). Some participants may also be asked to provide blood or urine samples. We’ll ask you to answer more questions from time to time. It’s up to you to decide how much information you want to share.
The health data we gather from participants will be stored in a database. Approved researchers can access this data to explore how factors like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to individuals, and enable a future of precision medicine for all of us.
What Is Precision Medicine?
The All of Us Research Program is part of the Precision Medicine Initiative. Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help health care teams find the treatment that will work best. This will help give health care providers the information they need to make tailored recommendations, relevant to people of different backgrounds, ages, or regions.LEARN ABOUT THE COSTS OF IMPRECISION

What Makes All of Us Unique?
Privacy First, Privacy Always
The All of Us Research Program wants to involve participants as partners in the research process. This means that participants will be invited to give input about the program along the way and can see their own information collected by the research program.
Partners, Not Subjects
The All of Us Research Program wants to make sure it does research with participants as partners in the process. This means that participants will be invited to give input about the program along the way and can see their own information collected by the research program.
A Resource For All of Us
The All of Us Research Program is not one single health study. It’s a database researchers can use to run thousands of health studies. This may lead to many different medical breakthroughs.
Open Research, Safe Research
The data we collect can be used by any approved researcher in the U.S. and around the world. There are strict rules they must follow to use the data. We want to inspire many types of researchers to use their creative thinking to find new discoveries.
