Our Mission

DBMI was founded in the summer of 2009; since then, it has been a Division within the Department of Medicine in the School of Medicine and, in 2015, it also became a Department of UC San Diego Health -- having the tri-partite mission of research, training, and service/collaboration.

All of Us Research Program

The mission is simple. We want to speed up health research breakthroughs. To do this, we're asking one million people to 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.
