Opportunities for Researchers

The All of Us Research Program enables researchers from various backgrounds who represent a range of demographics, training, scientific disciplines, and expertise to learn from a community of one million or more participants, including many from groups that have historically been underrepresented in health research. The program’s large, diverse, and broadly accessible data resource can help answer many questions to help create a healthier future for all of us.

About the Research Hub

The All of Us Research Hub is your gateway to participant data. Visit the Research Hub to:

  • Use the interactive Data Browser. The All of Us Research Program announced the beta release of the Data Browser in May 2019 to provide a first look at the data that participants are sharing for health research.
  • View Data Snapshots. Updated regularly, these snapshots provide graphics of participant demographics, geographic distribution, and more.
  • Read about All of Us data sources and methods of data curation.
  • Find information about privacy and security processes that help keep participant data safe.

The Research Hub also houses the Researcher Workbench platform and its suite of custom tools. The Workbench offers access to additional levels of data, workspaces, a cohort builder, and an interactive notebook environment. These tools are now available to registered and approved All of Us researchers.

All of Us is a broad program that can support research on many aspects of health, not just a single medical or biological research question. The data platform enables research that may:

  • Increase wellness and resilience and promote healthy living
  • Reduce health disparities and improve health equity in populations that are historically underrepresented in biomedical research (UBR)
  • Develop improved risk assessment and prevention strategies to prevent disease
  • Provide earlier and more accurate diagnoses to decrease illness burden  
  • Improve health outcomes and reduce disease impact through improved treatment and development of precision interventions 

Benefits for Researchers

All of Us offers three different access tiers : one for the general public; a second, restricted tier for registered researchers; and a third, controlled tier that allows for whole genome sequencing.

Researcher Access to Genomic Data

The controlled tier dataset integrates nearly 100,000 whole genome sequences (WGS) and more than 165,000 genomic arrays with information that can identify specific genes that individuals carry. Nearly 50% of the genetic data available come from participants who self-report as being part of a racial or ethnic minority group, putting this dataset on the leading edge of available research data. And with more data releases planned, this is just the beginning.

  • Save time and resources and accelerate research breakthroughs by accessing:
    • A rich data resource, including biospecimens and increasingly robust electronic health records
    • A longitudinal dataset that will follow participants as they move, age, develop relationships, get sick, and try treatments
    • A diverse cohort of participants
    • Raw data and data that are already cleaned and curated
    • Robust computing and analytic tools to support complex data analyses in a secure data environment
    • A group of engaged participants who may be interested in participating in ancillary studies
  • Share workspaces and analyses with research partners and reviewers
  • Learn from the program’s pilots and experiments
  • Leverage innovations of other studies and cohorts
