The All of Us Research Program is now recruiting people like you.

By gathering health information from people all over the country, All of Us will serve as a national resource to inform thousands of future research studies. The program is led by NIH.

Researchers will use data from the program to learn more about how individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biological makeup can influence health and disease. All of Us participants may be able to learn more about their own health too.

To join, you must be over the age of 18 and live in the U.S. After signing up and filling out enrollment and consent forms, you’ll be asked to fill out health surveys. You might also be invited to visit an All of Us partner center to give samples—like blood and urine.

All of Us is committed to protecting your privacy. Your name, address, and other identifying information will be removed from all the research data. We look forward to helping the future of research—and you!
