The Biobank is a large research program designed to help researchers learn how someone’s health is affected by their genes, lifestyle, and environment.

All of Us

All of Us, a program of the National Institutes of Health, is a research community of one million people who share their unique health data, enabling researchers to gain better insights into the biological, environmental, and behavioral factors that influence health and disease.

It aims to engage a community of participants that reflects the diversity of America, including many people who haven’t taken part in medical research before. We welcome participants both healthy and sick, of all backgrounds and walks of life, from all regions across the country.
