All of Us - The Precision Medicine Initiative (LSHSL Resource Guide)

The National Institutes of Health's (NIH's) All of Us Research Program is building one fo the largest biomedical data resources of its kind with health data from a diverse group of participants across the United States, including people and communities who have been left out of medical research in the past. Data include biological factors and social determinants of health on a large, inclusive scale that tracks participants as they move, age, and grow (longitudinal study design).

Data sources include:

  • Electronic Health Records (EHR) standardized using the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) Common Data Model (CDM).
  • Biosamples and bioassays from blood,  saliva, and/or urine samples.
  • Survey responses on identities and backgrounds, overall health, lifestyles, medical histories, healthcare access, experiences with COVID-19, and more.
  • Physical measurements when joining program.
  • Heart rate, physical activity, and sleep as tracked by wearable devices. 

The diverse database, which is a part of the Precision Medicine Initiative, is intended to inform studies on a multitude of conditions. 

Global Index Medicus - WHO

The Global Index Medicus (GIM) provides worldwide access to biomedical and public health literature produced by and within low-middle income countries. The main objective is to increase the visibility and usability of this important set of resources. The material is collated and aggregated by WHO Regional Office Libraries on a central search platform allowing retrieval of bibliographical and full text information.
