The All of Us Research Program Advisory Panel develops options, gives feedback, and evaluates program activities. The All of Us Research Program Director selects Panel members for their expertise in areas relevant to the goals of the All of Us Research Program mission. Official recommendations of the Panel will be reported to the NIH Council of Councils for further consideration. The Council of Councils will use the Panel’s findings and recommendations to provide final recommendations to the All of Us Director and the NIH Director.
Specifically, the members of the Panel will consider:
- The vision and direction of the All of Us Research Program
- Concept clearance for new grant initiatives to be established under the All of Us Research Program
- Review of preliminary grant funding plan proposals
- Ongoing assessment of current projects and programs supported by the All of Us Research Program
- Coordination and integration of the All of Us Research Program with activities of individual NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs).
The Panel will provide an intensive examination of the progress of the All of Us Research Program at appropriate intervals to ensure that its vision has continued to adapt to the evolving landscape of research, clinical practice, and participant engagement.
As necessary, with approval of its chair, the Panel may call upon special consultants, assemble ad hoc work groups, and convene conferences, workshops, and other activities.
The Child Enrollment Scientific Vision Working Group (CESVWG) was formed in 2017 to identify scientific goals that would be broadly enabled through the enrollment of children from diverse backgrounds into the All of Us Research Program.
The Genomics Working Group was formed in 2017 to identify options for the All of Us Research Program to consider as it develops a comprehensive genomics strategy. The group now convenes only as needed to assess progress and provide input on emerging issues.
The Tribal Collaboration Working Group will provide input on the inclusion of American Indian and Alaska Native populations in the program.
