The National Institutes of Health (NIH) All of Us Research Program is among the most ambitious research efforts that our nation has ever undertaken. It is an historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine. Unlike research studies that focus on one disease or group of people, All of Us is building a diverse database that can inform thousands of studies on a variety of health conditions as part of a new era in which researchers, health care providers, technology experts, community partners, and the public work together to develop individualized health care.
