Genome Web, All of Us Research Program Set to Open National Enrollment
Scientific American, Can the U.S. Get 1 Million People to Volunteer Their Genomes?
Context: On May 6, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will open national enrollment for the All of Us Research Program. According to the NIH the program is a momentous effort to advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for people of all backgrounds. All of Us seeks to transform the relationship between researchers and participants, bringing them together as partners to guide the program’s directions, goals and responsible return of research information. Participants will be able to access their own health information, summary data about the entire participant community, and information about studies and findings that come from All of Us. Data from the program will be broadly accessible for research. “The time is now to transform how we conduct research, with participants as partners, to shed new light on how to stay healthy and manage disease in more personalized ways. This is what we can accomplish through All of Us,” says Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., director, NIH. More information about the All of Us Research Program can be found on Mayo Clinic News Network.
