Access to the Researcher Workbench is available only to registered researchers affiliated with an organization with a Data Use and Registration Agreement (DURA), a legal and binding agreement that outlines organizational responsibilities, as well as permitted and prohibited uses of the data.
The All of Us Data and Research Center (DRC), coordinated through Vanderbilt University Medical Center, reviews DURA applications and contracts with organizations. After a DURA is in place, researchers affiliated with the organization who seek data access must register by verifying their identity, signing a Data User Code of Conduct (DUCC), and completing required All of Us training on conducting research ethically and responsibly.

Template language that we will suggest for IRB applications:
The investigators recognize that they will not be conducting human subjects research with All of Us data for two reasons: (1) The research will not directly involve participants, only their data; and (2) the data available in the Researcher Workbench has been carefully checked and altered to remove identifying information while preserving its scientific utility. Nevertheless, PIs using All of Us data are encouraged to apply the ethical principles of research with human participants to their work.
The All of Us Research Hub stores health data from a diverse group of participants from across the United States.
