Those who enrolled in the All of Us Research Program at the University of Wisconsin‒Madison and UW Health, now have the potential to directly impact the national fight against the COVID-19 pandemic....

All of Us aims to collect and study health data from at least a million people in the U.S. to advance precision medicine. The program's CEO, Josh Denny discusses the role of electronic health records, how the program protects participant privacy and, most recently, how the program is pivoting efforts to make discoveries about COVID-19....

The All of Us Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, today announced that it is leveraging its significant and diverse participant base to seek new insights into COVID-19—through antibody testing, a survey on the pandemic’s impacts and collection of electronic health record information....

The vast amount if scientific advancements have been made within the field of genomics have allowed for the field of precision medicine to transition froma previously hopeful fantasy to an impactful reality....

Our world has never witnessed a time of greater promise for improving  human health. Many health advances have stemmed from a long arc of discovery that begins with strong, steady support for basic science. Yet, despite this progress, much more remains to be done. Among the many efforts now poised to change the future of health is building a solid foundation for a more individualized approach to health care, called precision medicine....

DNA sequencing is creating vast amounts of data that promise to unlock the secrets of disease. But the information is being collected faster than the medical world can interpret what it all means. That is raising a question for doctors and scientists who perform the scans: How much should they tell patients?...

The specific guidance health care providers give to a patient—regarding diet, exercise, glucose monitoring, and medication—could be shaped by that person’s genotype, lifestyle, environment, and a wealth of other data points to which they will have access. The ability to apply "precision medicine" care is one of the many outcomes promised by the "All of Us" Research Program....

The All of Us Research Program at the National Institutes of Health has made strong progress in its efforts to advance precision medicine, according to program leadership in a paper in the New England Journal of Medicine....
