Eric Lefkosky and his contribution in the fight against cancer and Alzheimer.

Cancer and Alzheimer are among the diseases that have dreaded humanity for the more significant part of the 21st century. There has been an undying need to beat such conditions so that the human suffering could be alleviated. Some of the methods that have been employed include the application of learning by machines, artificial intelligence, and analyses of data. One of the most innovative ways of manipulation and computation of data has been brought to reality by Tempus Labs. Eric Lefkofsky is the brains behind this tech organization that focuses on merging, agglomerating, cleaning up and transforming the data for each patients health into digital form. This is a smart move by Eric and his team at Tempus Labs- an organization with its operations based in Chicago- as physicians would refer from the data in future. The central collection of the clinical and molecular data for patients with cancer would go a long way in helping the doctors make decisions based on data. Data collected covers aspects such as the treatment used by the physicians and how the patient responded to the procedure. Indeed physicians will be able to make well-informed decisions real time because of the reliable data available. The efforts of Tempus in their fight against cancer and Alzheimer have been recognized, and the firm has been ranked among the top ten in the field of health tech in Chicago. Valued partnerships between Tempus and academic institutions together with other healthcare firms have been formed. Tempus performs genomic sequencing on patients sent to their labs by oncologists. Also, the lab merges the clinical and molecular information and transmits the report back to the office of the physician subsequently granting the doctor access to the data system of Tempus.

He has co-founded companies such as Uptake Technologies, Groupon, Inner Workings and Echo Global Logistics.
