What We Do
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 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).
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 health care providers. The academy and other researcher engagement activities are central to building a diverse community of researchers.
