As All of Us Moves to Diversify Medicine, Its Tech Partners Push to Democratize Research

February 22, 2021

(STAT News) – Over the last four years, Lunt has worked with partners at the Broad Institute, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and Alphabet’s life science company Verily to build Researcher Workbench, a cloud-based analytics platform opened up to approved researchers around the country in recent months. As more researchers and more data enter its digital walls, the tool —  and its back end, an open-source system called Terra — will be put to the test. Big datasets like those All of Us is building — which include health records, imaging data, and one day, fully sequenced genomes — are a gold mine of insights about medicine.
