About Precision Medicine

What is Precision Medicine?

Precision medicine is health care that is based on each individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. To make health care better in the future, we need to learn more about the differences that make each of us unique. Participants can help by sharing their health information for research.

Partners, Not Subjects

People are becoming more and more engaged in their health. The All of Us Research Program will pioneer a new model of research where participants are partners in the process. This means that participants will be invited to give input about the program through surveys. They will see their own information collected by the research program. They could even conduct their own research as “citizen scientists.”

A Resource for All of Us

The All of Us Research Program is not one single health study. It’s a database researchers can use to run thousands of health studies. This may lead to many different medical breakthroughs.

Open Research, Safe Research

The data we collect can be used by any researcher in the U.S. and around the world. There are strict rules they must follow to use the data. We want to inspire many types of researchers to use their creative thinking to find new discoveries.

Why Now?

All of Us is a service mark of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS).
The All of Us platform is for research only and does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
