Eric Lefkofsky was born in 1969, in Detroit, Michigan, in the United States. He is the CEO and the co-founder of Tempus, a company based in Chicago, Illinois, United States that tries to fight cancer using the modern technology. He is a great entrepreneur who has also co-founded other companies including Groupon, Uptake Technologies, Mediaocean, and Innerworkings among others.
Accompanied by his wife Liz, Eric Lefkofsky also stated his own charity institution in 2006 which he named Lefkofsky Family foundation. The main objective of forming this foundation was expanding enterprises that improved the lives of people in their neighborhoods.
Since its foundation in 2015, Tempus majors in keeping proper records of their cancer patients in order to help them save lives of other patients. The company tries to come up with a precision medicine using information generated from DNA of their patients. All this efforts are centered on bringing together the patient’s data which is based on both medical and molecular examinations. With this data, the laboratory doctors are able to come up with the correct results and make right resolutions on how to treat the cancer patients.
The company has recently been ranked among the leading health care organizations in Chicago due to its efforts of fighting cancer, a deadly disease. It has even partnered with many other health organizations and learning centers in their struggle to find hope for cancer patients. The patients in these organizations are directed to them so that Doctors may file a report on how the patients respond to their treatments.
It has also been realized that Alzheimer’s infection can be handled with the provision of enough data from its patients. Other methods of handling the disease have similarly been established. These includes examining loss of memory among the patients and also trying to identify any signs of dementia in their bodies.
This is such a great achievement for the company since Alzheimer’s disease is now able to be detected in a patient at an early stage and hence initiating treatments. Advice is thus given to all persons with any signs of the disease to report earlier to medical institutions for checkups and diagnosis.
