The All Of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is inviting one million people across the U.S. to help build one of the most diverse health databases in history. People who join will share information about their health, habits and what it’s like where they live. That research will, in turn, support researchers in efforts to understand how different genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors impact health and disease. Studying DNA is a key part of this effort. One of the side benefits of participating is that you can get your DNA results over time. The University of Miami is a proud partner in the program and leads the SouthEast Enrollment Center (SEEC). “One of the most important developments is the opening of the ‘researcher workbench’ which allows scientists, physicians and even qualified students and trainees from the University of Miami to access over 280,000 biomedical datasets, soon complete with genomic data,” say Stephan Züchner, M.D., Ph.D. Principal Investigator, Chair & Professor of the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics. Located in one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the country, UM wants to ensure our rich diversity is represented in future medical research; JoinAllOfUs.org/Miami.
