Eric Lefkofsky – Accelerating the Progress in the Field of Cancer Research

Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in the world and is responsible for taking millions of lives globally each year. The area of cancer research, even though has seen positive signs of development in recent years, is yet to find a cure for this deadly epidemical disease. The researchers, scientists, oncologists, and physicians from around the world gathered at the Fortune Brainstorm Health Conference that was recently held in San Diego, which was also attended by Eric Lefkofsky, as a co-founder of Tempus.

At the conference, Mr Lefkofsky mentioned that thousands of lives could be saved each year if there is sufficient amount of accurate data is made available to the physicians to provide cancer treatment. Tempus, one of the many start-ups of Eric Lefkofsky, is a technology firm dedicated to collecting molecular, clinical, therapeutic, and outcome response data from many different sources to provide it in an integrated manner to the researchers and physicians. With the help of such data available quickly and in a free-flowing manner, it would become much easier for the researchers and doctors to understand the loopholes in their research and treatment respectively. It would help the concerned experts to make necessary changes and provide better cancer therapies that are result driven and productive.

Combining the power of technology with cancer research can help with accelerating the progress in the field of cancer research is what Eric Lefkofsky truly believes. Even though Eric belongs to an entirely different genre of business, and is popularly known for his company, GrouponInc, which is an e-commerce platform for merchants to offer lucrative deals to consumers, he delved into the field of cancer research after his wife was diagnosed with Breast cancer.

The idea behind Tempus is to help the field of cancer research to get a clean version of clinical and therapeutic data for verification and validation. It would save time, effort, and potentially lives of millions of people when implemented on a global scale, is what Eric Lefkofsky believes. Eric Lefkofsky is also the founder and co-founder of many other companies, including Echo Global Logistics, Uptake Technologies, Lightbank, and Mediaocean.
