Position Summary:

The All of Us Research Program (AoU) is a major initiative of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The program is working to engage at least one million volunteers living in the U.S. to contribute their health data over many years to improve health outcomes, fuel the development of new treatments for disease, and catalyze a new era of evidence-based and more precise preventive care and medical treatment. The AoU-UW Program Liaison will join a team of professionals located at UW-Madison, one of two Wisconsin sites for the All of Us program. The Program Liaison will play a key cross-functional leadership role for AoU-UW, coordinating and communicating activities across multiple teams, functions, and partners in collaboration with the AoU principal investigators and program area leads for enrollment, engagement, retention, and compliance. These responsibilities will fall into three primary areas:

-Operational leadership, coordination, and communication across AoU-UW functions.
-Coordination and facilitation of hiring, training, and onboarding.
-Process and systems development to support functional activities and cross-functional communication.

The AoU-UW team has developed and adopted values that include empathy, community, equity, resourcefulness, accountability, and motivation. Our commitment to conduct community-engaged, equitable research in precision health drives our ambitious goal to partner with 100,000 participants in Wisconsin. The AoU initiative requires a high level of creativity because continuous improvement and change is the norm. This role requires a can-do attitude, openness to new challenges, optimistic/collaborative outlook, active listening complemented by action-orientation, and flexibility.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.

Additional Information:

The Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) is a bold research effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. The PMI aims to leverage advances in genomics, emerging methods for managing and analyzing large data sets while protecting privacy, and health information technology to accelerate biomedical discoveries. NIH's All of Us Research Program is a major piece of the PMI. All of Us will engage one million or more volunteers living in the U.S. to contribute their health data over many years to improve health outcomes, fuel the development of new treatments for disease, and catalyze a new era of evidence-based and more precise preventive care and medical treatment. In Wisconsin, the All of Us program is led from Marshfield Clinic, with two recruitment sites located at UW-Madison and at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Successful engagement in the AoU program will occur in rural and urban settings, using both English and Spanish language materials, and will require enrolling at the rate of more than 25 participants per day.

The UW site team is nested within the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), a multidisciplinary research institution serving clinical and translational investigators across the University of Wisconsin campus and in communities throughout the state. Through a variety of programs, the institute produces investigators who can overcome obstacles to conducting clinical and translational research, often by listening to and working more effectively with on- and off-campus research partners. ICTR provides substantial services to investigators, including biostatistical support, clinical trial facilities, help in connecting with communities, and Internet access to other researchers with similar interests.
