All of Us Research Program

Columbia leads NYC Precision Medicine effort for National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program

The All of Us Research Program is a momentous effort to advance individualized prevention, treatment, and care for people of all backgrounds. A consortium led by Columbia University Irving Medical Center and joined by Weill Cornell Medicine, NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem, and NewYork-Presbyterian is spearheading enrollment in New York City. People ages 18 and older, regardless of health status, will be able to enroll. The New York City Consortium is a partner of the All of Us Research Program and is one of several regional networks across the county where individuals can enroll.

The overall aim is to enroll 1 million or more volunteers and oversample communities that have been underrepresented in research to make the program the largest, most diverse resource of its kind.

The NYC Consortium is responsible for enrolling 93,000 participants over a five-year period. The Principal Investigator for the NYC Consortium, David Goldstein, PhD, is passionate about the research potential with this national project, and has partnered closely with his colleagues across Clumbia University to enroll a wide variety of patients. Goldstein and his team have partnered with the Departments of Medicine, Ob/GYN, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Rehabilitation Medicine, ENT, Herbert Irving Cancer Center, and the College of Dental Medicine. 

"While we hope that ultimately All of Us teaches us about disease and the ability to target an intervention most appropriately, I am most excited about the novel science that will bring precision medicine to broader communities. Currently, precision medicine is happening in a one-off fashion and no one is systematically bringing precision medicine to entire communities. WithAll of Us, the delivery of precision medicine will be to entire communities where they benefit and feel a part of the delivery of precision medicine."  David Goldstein, PhD

Precision medicine is an emerging approach to disease treatment and prevention that considers differences in people's lifestyles, environments. and biological makeup, including genes. By partnering with 1 million diverse people who share information about themselves over many years, the All of Us Research Program will enable researchers to more precisely prevent and treat a variety of health conditions.
