All of Us Researcher Onramp Event
Thursday, November 12, 2020 | 11 a.m.–3 p.m. ET
Driving new insights into human health
The All of Us Research Program recently launched our beta version of the Researcher Workbench. This accessible, cloud-based platform enables researchers like you to execute rapid, hypothesis-driven research on one of the largest and most diverse biomedical datasets of its kind.
About the Onramp Event
Researchers interested in learning more about the All of Us Researcher Workbench and how to leverage its powerful analytic capabilities and are invited to tune in to this virtual gathering on November 12 to:
- Learn about the program’s vision from All of Us CEO Josh Denny, M.D., M.S., and University of California San Diego Professor of Medicine Lucila Ohno-Machado, M.D., Ph.D.
- Experience a demonstration of the Workbench by Kelsey Mayo, Ph.D., of Vanderbilt University
- Hear directly from beta users at leading research institutions about how they leveraged All of Us data and tools to power their studies
- Learn how to register, access, and analyze data within the All of Us Researcher Workbench
The event will conclude with small group breakout sessions walking through the steps of the onboarding process for new users, as well as an opportunity to provide feedback directly to the All of Us Research Support Team!
Complete agenda coming soon.
Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Register now!
Who Should Attend?
While we welcome a broad cross section of attendees, this Researcher Onramp event will be of most use to current and prospective Workbench users, trainees, and early-career investigators who have experience with coding or with R/Python and an interest/background in data science. We particularly welcome researchers from groups underrepresented in the scientific workforce.
At this time, access to the All of Us Researcher Workbench is available to researchers with eRA Commons accounts and institutional signoff. If your organization is not listed, you can help us start the process for obtaining access before the event.
About the Researcher Workbench
The All of Us Researcher Workbench is the largest, most diverse biomedical data resource of its kind. Built in partnership with participants spanning different ages, races, ethnicities, and regions of the country, it currently includes physical measurements (for more than 188,000 participants), surveys (for more than 224,000 participants), and electronic health records (for more than 127,000 participants):
- More than 45% of participants are racial and ethnic minorities
- More than 75% of participants are from groups underrepresented in biomedical research
Participants are also diverse in gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, and health status. And this is just the start. NIH will continue to evolve the experience, using input and feedback from Researcher Workbench users and other researchers, and will add additional data and tools over time—including information from wearables, COVID-19 data, genomics, linked datasets, and more.
The initial (“beta”) version includes an early set of data and tools, along with personalized researcher support resources such as an integrated help desk, regular office hours, sample datasets, and more.
