Bryce Olson is the Global Strategist for Intel’s Health and Life Sciences group. One of the areas he focuses on is bringing technology and science together in the exciting area of genomics and precision medicine with a powerful message on how this saves lives. Genomic sequencing and precision medicine gave him a life he didn’t think he’d get to live.
Bryce is inspired by connecting the advances in technology and life sciences into clinical settings and helping patients understand these new opportunities. He is a sought after keynote speaker and his story has been covered by national and international media. Bryce started FACTS (‘Fighting Advanced Cancer Through Songs’), a movement that uses the power of music to build awareness for a new way to fight cancer and bring molecular testing and precision medicine to other advanced cancer patients. In 2017, Bryce wrote and co-produced a rock-n-roll album with proceeds going towards the FACTS movement, that brought together a variety of Portland, Oregon based musicians and singers including Jenny Conlee from the Decemberists, Martha Davis from the Motels, Pete Krebs, and Michelle DeCourcy – all four who are also cancer survivors. Bryce also started the ‘www.sequenceme.org’ movement, a patient-driven call to action to accelerate the adoption of new genomic sequencing innovation through greater patient education, awareness building, and community.
