All of Us
All of Us Research Program

The University of Arizona Health Sciences and Banner Health have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to participate in the All of Us Research Program which aims to enroll 1 million or more U.S. participants to improve prevention and treatment of disease based on individual differences in lifestyle, environment and genetics.

As part of the federal Precision Medicine Initiative, the NIH is leading the effort to build a national, large-scale research enterprise with one million or more volunteers to extend precision medicine to all diseases. The All of Us Research Program, will be a participant-engaged, data-driven enterprise supporting research at the intersection of lifestyle, environment, and genetics to produce new knowledge with the goal of developing more effective ways to prolong health and treat disease.

Arizona CEAL Program
Arizona CEAL Program

Arizona is one of eleven National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant funded Community Engagement Alliance (CEAL) states on a mission to provide trustworthy information through active community engagement and outreach to the people hardest-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Arizona CEAL's overarching goal is to conduct community-engaged research and outreach to increase COVID-19 awareness, prevention strategies such as vaccinations, and education among communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, and to reduce misinformation and mistrust.

Ending the COVID-19 pandemic will require rapid development and implementation of effective strategies to enhance awareness and uptake of vaccination and other preventive measures, and to improve inclusion of communities disproportionally affected by COVID-19 in research. To address this, Banner Health and the University of Arizona established a COVID-19 Research Oversight Committee. This partnership will capitalize on current systems and expertise to better position Arizona for the high-impact COVID-19 research opportunities our communities need.
