NIH Establishes Early Version of Personalized Medicine Platform

Publication date: Jul 02, 2019

The first, early results of that spending were announced on May 7, when the All of Us research project went live with three types of aggregate health data on 142,000 individuals.

Bruce Korf, MD, Chief Genomics Officer, UAB Medicine, says, -The All of Us research program is creating an unprecedented rich set of medical and biological data on one million participants who reflect the diversity of the United States.

The NIH program is headed by Eric Dishman, former vice president of the Health and Life Sciences Group at Intel Corporation, where he was responsible for driving global strategy, research and development, product and platform development, and policy initiatives for health and life science solutions.

He explained that All of Us works with a consortium of 2,000 organizations and people from local communities to convince individuals to provide three types of data: electronic health records, responses to survey questions, and physical measurements.

The data are available on the All of Us website where one can view, for example, the top 10 health conditions and then drill down in each category to get breakdowns, such as the age of those people affected and other measures.

Gary Gibbons, MD, Director of the Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at NIH, posited the potential by explaining that further study of genomic variations among African Americans could help explain the root causes of sickle cell disease.

Beyond sickle cell disease, Gibbons noted that genomic/environmental interaction could identify people who are at increased risk for heart disease, hypertension, coronary disease, and asthma.
