Eric Lefkofsy recently also started Tempus Inc to help the field of cancer research. Eric realized that the technology is not used at its potential best in the field of cancer and medical research. There are many sub-segments in the area of cancer research that can develop and improve much faster with the help of technology, and it is what Tempus Inc aims to do and achieve. Tempus Inc aggregates molecular, clinical, patient outcome, and therapeutic data to help the physicians, oncologists, and other researchers working in the field of cancer research.For example, if a particular medicine is used to treat cancer for one patient, it is effective, and the same drug used on another cancer patient, it has not yielded similar results. Such results and the correlation between these two cases are very crucial in defining a highly effective treatment for the future.
The data of such cases when aggregated together in large amounts, a defining procedure can be constructed that can help provide much more efficient cancer therapies. It can also tremendously help answer many unanswered questions in the field of cancer research. Tempus Inc, founded by Eric Lefkofsky aims to fill in the gap and provide such data to the professionals in the area of cancer research.Eric Lefkofsky is also the author of a famous book named Accelerated Disruption that talk about the critical of innovation and technology in the various industry, and how it can impact the future of different sectors.Follow him on twitter : https://twitter.com/lefkofsky
