Who We Are

The All of Us Research Program is made up of a large and diverse community. Together, we are advancing one of the most ambitious health research programs in history.

All of Us is supported and overseen by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The program is the result of NIH’s Precision Medicine Initiative Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the Director, which concluded its work in 2015.
