The All of Us Research Program site at the University of Miami is located in one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the United States. We want to ensure the rich culture of South Florida is represented in future medical research.
By taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, environment, and biology, researchers will have the information to better understand health and disease. The more we know about what makes communities like Miami unique, the more customized health care can become.
Why should I join All of Us through the University of Miami?
The University of Miami is a partner of the All of Us Research Program and the leading site of the SouthEast Enrollment Center (SEEC). We proudly serve the people of South Florida and aim to enroll over 40,000 partners.
Researchers, including those at Miami, study DNA and other information* from participants to make health discoveries. They could:
• Identify what makes people more or less likely to develop a disease
• Find out how environment, lifestyle, and genes can impact health
• Build better tools for detecting health conditions and encouraging healthy habits
*We remove obvious identifiers from data we share with researchers. This means that researchers studying your DNA will not know your personal details, like your name or where you live.
Who can join All of US at the University of Miami?
All eligible adults who live in the United States can join the All of Us Research Program. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Right now only people who are 18 or older can join All of Us at the University of Miami. Children will be able to join in the future.
