Enrollment of LGBTQIA+ participants in ambitious population genomics study soars to nearly 40,000 using Vibrent’s digital platform

FAIRFAX, Va.: Vibrent Health, a leading software-as-a-service company in the field of precision genomics research, announced today the creation of the largest research dataset of individuals identifying as LGBTQIA+. Vibrent's technology collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) All of Us Research Program facilitated this historic milestone.

“The fact that the program is even asking about gender identity and sexual orientation from one million people is historic,” said Mitchell R. Lunn, MD, MAS, FACP, FASN, associate professor of medicine and of epidemiology and population health at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Lunn also serves as co-director of PRIDEnet, an All of Us national community engagement partner focused on engaging members of the LGBTQIA+ community. “These data provide researchers the opportunity to better understand the health needs and experiences of communities.”

Vibrent's digital platform enables participants to consent to donate their biosamples, along with additional phenotypic, clinical (EMR), wearables, and real-world data to the comprehensive All of Us dataset, which is used in thousands of research studies across the nation. Vibrent’s platform also provides individuals access to the genetic results returned through the program. "Vibrent Health played a critical role in developing the tools that enabled deeper assessment of sex at birth, gender identity, and sexuality,” said Mark Begale, Lead PI for the Participant Technology Services Center.

“Building a dataset of this size, representing a community as diverse as the LGBTQIA+ community, demonstrates the importance of inclusiveness and trust-building in research. Using digital methods augments the important work done in communities and allows research programs like the All of Us Research Program to scale to a size of this magnitude,” said Praduman (PJ) Jain, CEO of Vibrent.
