The NIH All of Us Research Program
The All of Us Research Program is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine. The UChicago site, led by Institute Director Dr. Habib Ahsan, is collaborating with Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to establish the Illinois Precision Medicine Consortium (IPMC). Alongside Northwestern and UIC, the UChicago will be recruiting 33,000 of the 100,000 participants in Chicago (and rural Illinois) in the next 5-years.
