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

The All of Us Researcher Academy is a comprehensive program that provides training and technical assistance for researchers who are 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 also supports peer-to-peer learning and network-building among researchers and students.

The academy is dedicated to providing support to institutions that have a documented historical mission or historical commitment to training underrepresented students. Currently, the All of Us Researcher Academy resources are free for students, faculty, and post-docs at institutions with a track record of training researchers underrepresented in the biomedical workforce. See the Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity for examples of groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in the biomedical research workforce.

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.

Instructor: Dr. Altovise Ewing

This short course will introduce individuals to the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genetics research. Scholars will be guided through an immersive and experiential learning encounter designed to advance their knowledge, capability and competency to address ELSI in genetics research. This course will also enhance scholars’ abilities to curate solutions to address the long-standing inequities and disparities that perpetually marginalize minoritized and underrepresented populations of color in genetics research, medicine, and science. This course is ideal for everyone.
