How to Register as a Researcher

The Researcher Workbench is open to researchers whose institutions have signed a Data Use and Registration Agreement with the All of Us Research Program. The Institutional Agreements page includes information on whether an institution’s agreement includes Registered or Controlled Tier access. Researchers must also have an eRA Commons account and complete the All of Us Research Program registration process before they can access the Researcher Workbench and Registered Tier or Controlled Tier data. If you are a researcher who does not have an eRA Commons account, please work with your institution to create one. Once your account is established, you may apply for access to the Researcher Workbench. For more information, visit the eRA Commons website.

You can also visit the Researcher Workbench registration page directly to get started.
