25 Sep What to look forward to at Discover Brigham!
The All of Us Research Program (AoURP) is a historic effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Medical Center are collaborating as All of Us New England (AoUNE). By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine. By enrolling one million or more volunteers, the AoURP will have the scale and scope to enable research for a wide range of diseases, both common and rare, as well as increase our understanding of healthy states. A critical component of the AoURP is the access to the data and research that is collected. Varying levels of access to the data (depending on individual credentials and clearances) will be granted to doctors, researches, scientists and citizen scientists alike, all across the country, via the All of Us Data Browser. This interactive tool will allow researchers to see de-identified participant demographics, health histories, and search for any health condition within the data set. There is a significant opportunity for researchers to utilize this data to inform on-going and future research initiatives right here at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
