Eric Dishman served as the founding Director of the All of Us Research Program from 2016 through 2019, leading the effort to build the NIH team, consortium, and infrastructure to launch recruitment and data collection nationally. Then he asked to change roles to leverage his Silicon Valley expertise to become All of Us’s first Chief Innovation Officer, responsible for strategic planning, leading All of Us's innovation portfolio, and building a culture and process for rapid design and development of new programs, products, and capabilities for All of Us.
Previously, Eric was an Intel fellow and vice president of the Health and Life Sciences Group at Intel Corporation, where he was responsible for driving global strategy, research and development, product and platform development, and policy initiatives for health and life science solutions. His organization focused on growth opportunities for Intel in health information technology, genomics and personalized medicine, consumer wellness, and care coordination technologies. Eric is widely recognized as a global leader in health care innovation with specific expertise in home and community-based technologies and services for chronic disease management and independent living. Trained as a social scientist, Eric is known for pioneering innovation techniques that incorporate anthropology, ethnography, and other social science methods into the development of new technologies. He also brings his own experience as a cancer patient for 23 years—finally cured thanks to precision medicine—to drive a person-centric view of health care transformation.
