All of Us Research Program
About the Study
The All of Us Research Program is seeking one million people from across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. We welcome participants from all backgrounds. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
How to Join
With All of Us, participants are true partners, with ongoing opportunities to help shape the program with their input. Further, data will be shared with both researchers and participants. As a government-funded program committed to open data and science, All of Us will make data broadly accessible to researchers of all kinds, including citizen scientists, to support thousands of studies across a wide range of different health topics.
Other large research programs collect limited types of samples or data, often focused on a specific disease. All of Us gathers blood, urine, and saliva samples; physical measurements; electronic health records; survey information about participants’ health histories, family medical histories, lifestyles, and communities; and wearable data to get a more complete picture of human health across many conditions. The expected duration of the research program is 10 years.
All of Us participants can participate as much or as little as they wish. The longer participants take part in the program, the more they may contribute and learn about their health. For example, if participants provide samples, the program can check their for information. This can include, for example, information about genetic traits and ancestry, risks for certain diseases, and how their may affect how their body processes certain medicines. They may also be able to receive other data as well, such as through wearable devices or special apps.
Individuals interested in joining All of Us can sign up online at https://www.joinallofus.org/.They may also visit participating partners at Health Care Provider Organizations across the country. At these partner sites, people can learn more about the All of Us Research Program and also join. Our partners include regional medical centers, community health centers, and medical centers run by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
All of Us is supported and overseen by the National Institutes of Health ().
All eligible adults over 18, living anywhere in the United States can join. Our participants reflect the rich diversity of America, including volunteers of many races and ethnicities, age groups, geographic regions, gender identities, sexual orientations, and health statuses.
