What is the All of Us Research Program?

The All of Us Research Program is the largest and most inclusive study by the National Institutes of Health that aims to speed up research and medical breakthroughs to deliver personalized medicine and treatment to patients. The University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine is one of the leading enrollment centers, with seven locations throughout Miami-Dade County, including the Lennar Foundation Medical Center, and a newly opened location in Coral Springs.

Why is it important?

By asking more than one million volunteers across the nation to share different types of health and lifestyle information, the initiative aims to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs to improve health outcomes and deliver precision and personalized medicine to patients. Some of the data already is available to University of Miami researchers, and resulted in new knowledge about cardiovascular disease in Hispanic populations.

All participants in the All of Us Research Program, including University of Miami students and faculty and staff members, must be 18 years of age or older and will be compensated $25. A few months after submitting their samples in person, participants also will get access to their unique genetic data which can include:

  • Details about ancestry.

  • A list of traits, such as lactose intolerance or a distaste for cilantro. 
  • Pinpointing an increased risk of developing a particular health condition.

  • Highlighting how the body might react to certain medications.

  • Other health-related information.

Participants can choose if they want to receive the information. All the medical data submitted is kept confidential.
