To celebrate their anniversary the All of Us team hosted a symposium discussing the program - From Data to Discoveries: Creating a Research Program for All of Us - and have made a videocast of the symposium is available here: All of Us Videocast.

All of Us, like the National Children's Study and the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) study, is working to understand the environmental causes of health and we at the NCS Archive are excited to see the advancements they made.

All of Use Research Hub Logo

The team has launched the All of Us Research Hub to share information with researchers and today they are launching the Data Browse to explore aggregated All of Us data and the Survey Explorer to explore All of Us research tools.


Like All of Us, the NCS Archive has great data exploration tools - Protocol Browser, Instrument and Dataset Inventories, Participant Explorer, Sample Explorer, and Variable Locator.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Data and Specimen Hub (DASH)

The NICHD DASH repository now provides an exciting complement to the over 160,000 biological samples, most with consent for genetic analysis, and more than 3,000 environmental samples available for research analysis available on the NCS Archive.


The NIH has recently published notice: NOT-HD-19-004: NICHD Data and Specimen Hub (DASH) Releases New Functionality for Biospecimen Requests. This notice informs the scientific community about the new DASH function as a portal for researchers to access shared biospecimens.

We encourage researcher to take a few minutes to read the notice and visit the DASH website.
