The All of Us Research Program aims to build one of the largest, most diverse datasets of its kind for health research, with one million or more volunteers nationwide, who will sign up to share their information over time. Researchers will be able to access participants’ de-identified information for a variety of studies to learn more about the biological, behavioral, and environmental factors that influence health and disease. Their findings may lead to more individualized health care approaches in the future.
Using IdeaScale, the All of Us Research Program is collecting ideas through a tool known as a “use case” that outlines and describes research questions that the All of Us Research Program could help answer.
The information provided will be used at the All of Us Research Priorities Workshop on March 21–23, 2018, to identify key research priorities and requirements (such as data types and methods) for future versions of the All of Us protocol.
You can ensure that dental, oral and craniofacial research is included in the All of Us Research Program by:
1. Voting for the following ideas submitted by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research by Friday, February 9:
- What genetic factors and environmental factors are associated with dental caries?
- What genes are associated with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) and its co-morbid pain conditions?
- What genetic factors are associated with oral cancer (OC) and oropharyngeal cancer (OPC)?
- What genetic factors are associated with aggressive periodontitis?
2. Clicking here to be directed to IdeaScale, where you can see the ideas submitted by others or add your own idea by Friday, February 9.
3. Sending your idea to email@example.com that may be submitted on behalf of AADR by COB Friday, January 26.
Thank you for your engagement in this research initiative.
