About the All of Us Research Program

The National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to collect and study data from at least one million people living in the United States.

The goal of All of Us is to speed up health research discoveries, enabling new kinds of individualized health care. To make this possible, the program is building one of the world’s largest and most diverse databases for health research. The program aims to reflect the diversity of the United States and to include participants from communities that have been underrepresented in health research in the past.

About the All of Us Researcher Academy

As part of a commitment to fostering diversity in health research, the All of Us Researcher Academy supports access to the Researcher Workbench for researchers from institutions that are underrepresented in biomedical research.

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.

Who can participate in the Researcher Academy?

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 is engaging with 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. An HSI is defined as an institution of higher education that is an eligible institution and has an enrollment of an undergraduate full-time equivalent of students that is at least 25 percent Hispanic students at the end of the award year immediately preceding the date of application (20 U.S. Code §1101a).

How can I access the Researcher Workbench

Access to the Researcher Workbench is available to researchers whose institutions have Data Use and Registration Agreements (DURAs) in place with All of Us. To learn more about data access and use, please visit the All of Us Research Hub.

Who leads the Researcher Academy?

RTI International leads the All of Us Researcher Academy in collaboration with the All of Us Research Program’s Division of Engagement and Outreach. The division partners with community organizations nationwide to foster relationships with participants, researchers, and healthcare providers. The academy and other researcher engagement activities are central to building a diverse community of researchers.

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, in partnership with RTI International, is utilizing our diverse network and partnerships of college and university affiliates to increase the engagement of Historically Black College and University students, faculty, staff, and researchers in the Researcher Academy and use of the Researcher Workbench.

Researcher Academy Institutional Champions

As part of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) All of Us Research Program, the academy provides capacity building, training, technical assistance, and peer-to-peer learning for health researchers using the All of Us Researcher Workbench.

The first phase of the All of Us Researcher Academy is focused on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), which have a historical commitment to educating students from groups that have been historically underrepresented in the biomedical workforce.

Awards are dispersed to support faculty and staff use of the All of Us Researcher Workbench, the cloud-based platform where researchers can access the All of Us dataset. Each institution will support researchers for a year and can welcome visiting students and faculty from other HBCUs to participate in activities that increase capacity to analyze the All of Us dataset.
