Conquering Diseases

Conquering Diseases is the name given to a research project that hopes to discover the keys to better health in our community. The Conquering Diseases Program is a partnership between community members, the patients being cared for by the health professionals of UMass Memorial and the research community.

The Conquering Diseases Program consists of three components: a Clinical Research Volunteer Registry, a Biorepository,  and a Community Resource Center. These three components are available to researchers,  patients and community members alike.

The ultimate goal of Conquering Diseases is to gain a better understanding of the diseases our patients suffer from, how to prevent, and better treat these afflictions. The Conquering Diseases programs are supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, National Institutes of Health.

All of Us

The All of Us Research Program is a large research program from the National Institutes of Health. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.  

We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what a­ffects people’s health.  

The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time. If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an e­ffort to improve the health of generations to come. You also may learn about your own health.
