As of late, brilliant American entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky is back in the news since his Chicago based and highly revered analytics firm, Tempus’, officially partnered with another startup based out of New York that is known as Precision Health AI. The ultimate drive behind the exciting partnership is the formation of a global library dedicated to data related solely to any and all existing information regarding cancer treatment around the world. This could potentially be achieved due to Precision Health AI’s access to the database known as CancerLinQ. Said database exists as an archive of information surrounding the treatment of six-hundred thousand patients. The database was formed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus see an opportunity to use tech, primarily ‘Big Data’, to combat cancer. The new duo is looking to be in a ten year partnership. The hope is that doctors will have greater insight into a diversity of treatment options for all kinds of people, in part based on individuals’ RNA and DNA so that help can be truly personalized. Tempus will strengthen cancer research in ways that were previously thought to be unimaginable. This is exciting news and indicative of the potential of Tech and Big Data to help people in the health sphere.
Eric Lefkofsky worked hard to get where he is. He started out selling carpets in Michigan and even started an apparel company in Wisconsin. In 1999 he immersed himself in the potential of the internet. From there, he continued as an innovator and figurehead. He was the major force behind billionaire dollar company Groupon, formerly known as the ‘The Point’. Now he is spearheading Tempus, a revolutionary approach to personalized cancer care. Lefkofsky is a notable philanthropist and is beloved for work in the Chicago community.
He is optimistic and focused on the bigger picture, a man looking to help in anyway he can and use his platform as a way of helping the world work together to achieve answers to life’s most troubling concerns. Tempus serves as a means of simply spreading information to parties in need.
