Banner Research conducts high-quality clinical trials and other medical research. Our dedication is to our patients to turn discoveries into new diagnoses, treatments and prevention methods for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cardiovascular disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis and cancer.
The studies and programs encompassed within Banner Research include:
The University of Arizona Health Sciences and Banner Health have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to participate in the All of Us Research Program which aims to enroll 1 million or more U.S. participants to improve prevention and treatment of disease based on individual differences in lifestyle, environment and genetics. Learn more about the All of Us Research Program.
As part of the federal Precision Medicine Initiative, the NIH is leading the effort to build a national, large-scale research enterprise with one million or more volunteers to extend precision medicine to all diseases. The All of Us Research Program, will be a participant-engaged, data-driven enterprise supporting research at the intersection of lifestyle, environment, and genetics to produce new knowledge with the goal of developing more effective ways to prolong health and treat disease. To reflect the diversity of the U.S. population, the program will enroll participants from diverse social, racial/ethnic, ancestral, geographic, and economic backgrounds, from all age groups and health statuses. Information from the program will be a broad, powerful resource for researchers working on a variety of important health questions. Importantly, the program will focus not just on disease, but also on ways to increase an individual’s chances of remaining healthy throughout life. Learn more about the All of Us Research Program.
