BETHESDA, Md. – Dr. Kelly Gebo has joined the All of Us Research Program at the National Institutes of Health as the program’s new chief medical and scientific officer. The All of Us Research Program seeks to advance precision medicine by building a national research cohort of 1 million or more participants from diverse communities across the United States to contribute their physical, genomic and electronic health record data. In addition to providing blood and urine samples, participants will allow their information to be collected for the program through wearable devices, physical measurements and surveys. In her new role, Gebo will work with health care professionals and researchers, participants and national and community-based organizations to lead the program’s scientific agenda, with a special focus on populations that have been historically underrepresented in research. She will also work with key stakeholders, including participants, NIH leadership and partners, to guide protocol revisions and data collection processes, and with the institutional review board and the All of Us team to provide clinical oversight. “Kelly brings a wealth of expertise in cohort research, data quality and analysis, and clinical care, and with continued input from diverse stakeholders across the country, will help us further develop our scientific roadmap for this project,” said Eric Dishman, director of the All of Us Research Program, in a statement. Gebo is a professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University and an expert in HIV health services research and clinical outcomes. “I look forward to working with participants, providers and researchers as we collaborate to collect high-quality data and enable groundbreaking research,” she said in a statement.
