Cancer is a disease that has touched everyone in some way. The the National Cancer Institute states that 14.5 million Americans were living with cancer in 2014. There is a desperate need for industries that research treat cancer.
Fortunately there are companies that are trying to beat cancer. Tempus, a company formed by legendary entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky, is trying to change the way that cancer care is delivered.
Tempus’ goal is to make genomic information easier to pair with the patients. They believe that data presentation and organization is the key to making large strides against cancer. In other words; they are taking the fight to the molecular and cellular level. Human DNA may hold the solution to many problems. Advances in human genome sequencing may one day lead to the end of cancer.
Eric Lefkofsky has dedicated his life to helping others. He graduated from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbour in 1991. Two years later he earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School.
His extensive career and education grants him a unique skill set. He has found success in the venture capital business as well as the dotcom craze of the early millennium.
Aside from his work at Tempus he is on the board of Lurie’s Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. He also founded the Lefkofsky Family Foundation with his wife. This foundation’s goal is to enhance the quality of life in their community.
