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.
