More than 230,000 people have enrolled in the All of Us Research Program since it opened last May, 175,000 of whom have completed the core protocol, according to an update on the program published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine. The 21st Century Cures Act of 2016 authorized $1.5 billion for the program, which aims to enroll at least 1 million volunteers from diverse communities to share health and lifestyle information over time in a secure and private way for research in precision medicine, an emerging approach to disease treatment and prevention that considers differences in people’s lifestyles, environments and biological makeup.
