Three Wisconsin-based medical and scientific organizations have collectively been awarded $5.36 million to help implement the National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program in Wisconsin.

Marshfield (Wis.) Clinic Research Institute, Madison-based University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and Milwaukee-based Medical College of Wisconsin will partner with the BloodCenter of Wisconsin and regional Federally Qualified Health Centers to engage and recruit research participants in the state.

The All of Us Research Program, which is part of the federal Precision Medicine Initiative, aims to engage more than 1 million participants in sharing biological samples, genetic data and lifestyle information. 

"Our organizations have a long history of research collaboration and robust community engagement, and we're proud to be involved in a program focused on a future where better prevention, detection and treatment are possible through research," said Murray Brilliant, PhD, director of the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute's Center for Human Genetics, a division of Marshfield Clinic Health System.
