All of Us
The National Institutes of Health has awarded $55 million to build the foundational partnerships and infrastructure needed to launch the Cohort Program of President Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI)—now called All of Us. All of Us is a landmark longitudinal research effort that aims to engage 1 million or more U.S. participants to improve our ability to prevent and treat disease based on individual differences in lifestyle, environment and genetics. CHIP received a supplement for the All of Us research program to study the degree of EHR data fragmentation in WI, IL, and IN.
CHIP team members are helping to lead All of Us efforts in Chicago and nationally as part of the Illinois Precision Medicine Consortium and the Data Coordinating Center.
The Illinois consortium is comprised of a group of health care provider organizations led by Northwestern University, University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, and AllianceChicago. The consortium will enroll at least 150,000 participants, including healthy people and those with pre-existing diseases, over 4.5 years. The Data and Research Support Center—awarded to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and working with Broad Institute and Verily Life Sciences—has been established to acquire, organize, and provide secure access to what will be one of the world’s largest and most diverse datasets for precision medicine research.
