Eric Lefkofsky Invites Technology To Beat Cancerr

Cancer is a life-threatening disease whose treatment is receiving technological assistance. A data-base driven platform can now collect and analyze customized care data to better help suffers of various cancer related diseases. This cancer defined platform data will give doctors and researchers succinct information on making real-time treatment plans, including the precise medication and treatments that can be customized for each patient.

This data consortium is called “Tempus.” Tempus data is now a new modus of delivering cancer treatments by analyzing a patient’s personal clinical and molecular data. After a tenuous journey, Tempus now operates by having developed analytical software which analyzes and tailors each patient’s personal medical data.

Tempus is under the aegis of Eric Lefkofsky who is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Lefkofsky has a personal reason to push the amazing Tempus data-driven platform and that would be because of his wife. His wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and while going through the process of cancer treatments, he discovered a lack of information in collecting his wife’s personal data.

Yes, doctor’s keep succinct notes, but that is not enough to exemplify and streamline all the information needed to make effective use of a customized cancer data. Now with Tempus, physician notes and other paper information can be transformed into structured data to be revamped into useful data to treat advanced cancer exploratory modules.

Eric Lefkofsky attended The University of Michigan Law School where he received a Juris Doctor. Eric believes that technology advancements like Tempus are what will help physicians pair cancer patients with the medical regiment that can be tailored to effectively treat their particular type of cancer, including how to ameliorate many other types of diseases.

Mr. Lefkofsky’s career has always included some form of technology, analytical predictions, data logistics and other forms of e-commerce solutions. This career background involved his management positions like being a co-founder of Groupon and working at Uptake Technologies, Mediaocean, Echo Global Logistics, and InnerWorkings.

Eric Lefkofsky and his wife have formed the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. Mr. Lefkofsky charitably works with the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, The Museum of Science and Industry and World Business, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Eric Lefkofsky is an adjunct professor at the Booth School of Business.
