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).
