Tempus is a technology company that will collect, sort and analyze the clinical data from different organizations across the country and abroad to help in the research and treatment of cancer. The data gathered will be made available to different doctors, researchers and physicians to allow them to make better treatment plans for their patients. They have partnered with a number of different organizations and universities for the purpose of collection of their data and then analyzing them.
In a recent interview, the founder of the company, Eric Lefkofsky said that it was important to mix technology and medical science to be able to provide the researchers and the doctors with the right information that they need at the right time. Tempus is yet another effort to ensure that people with cancer that has increased odds can see a ray of hope and get treatment using real data and not just speculation. It is the aim of the company to provide as much information as they can to allow doctors to make better treatment plans. Eric Lefkofsky on Twitter.
Eric Lefkofsky, the CEO and the founder of Tempus is not new to the technology industry. He has founded a few technology companies like Echo Global Logistics, InnerWorkings, MediaOcean and more. Among these, the top is Groupon that now has a presence in many different countries across the globe. He is also associated with many different non-profit organizations. In fact, he and his wife, Liz created a family foundation under the name of Lefkofsky Family Foundation that has made a huge difference to many different communities. Apart from that, he is also a trustee of the Art Institute of Chicago for many years now. He is also the member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
Eric Lefkofsky is driven by passion when it comes to overlooking the working of his new company, Tempus. After his wife had been diagnosed with cancer, he realized how little information was there to help researchers and doctors to make important decisions. He wanted to create something that will allow cancer patients across the world to find all the information they need from one place.
