About the Researcher Academy

The All of Us Researcher Academy is a comprehensive program that provides training and technical assistance for researchers conducting research with the All of Us Researcher Workbench, the cloud-based analytics platform where registered researchers can access data from All of Us participants. The academy resources are available at no cost to all registered researchers based on availability. The academy also supports peer-to-peer learning and network-building among researchers from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical workforce. The All of Us Researcher Academy supports researchers using All of Us data to explore questions about health and wellbeing. Currently, the All of Us Researcher Academy resources are free for students, faculty, and post-docs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). HBCUs are institutions described in section 4(b) of Executive Order 14041, incorporating by reference the institutions listed in 34 C.F.R. 608.2]. HSIs must have a full-time equivalent of at least 25 percent undergraduate Hispanic students enrolled at the end of 2022 to be eligible (20 U.S. Code §1101a).
