Around 40 percent of the total adult population in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in the future. The disease has already claimed hundreds of millions of deaths since prehistory, and today, scientists are working overtime to fight the disease and find a way to cure it. There are more than 15 million people who are suffering from cancer in the United States, and the number is expected to rise in the near future. However, technological advances are being developed to combat the disease, and one of the companies which are working overtime to stop the progression of the disease is Tempus. Tempus was founded by Eric Lefkofsky, and he is currently specializing in data-enabled precision medicine.
With the advancement in technology, people are having the perception that the medical field is also in their advanced state, but they are wrong. The medical industry is still considered as having inferior technology, until the creation of technologies developed by Tempus. Eric Lefkofsky’s wife has been diagnosed with cancer, and he is doing his best to combat the disease to save his wife. However, the experience from taking care of his wife gave him a firsthand experience in dealing with people who have the disease. He found out that there are loopholes in the medical industry when talking about the collection of data from the patients, so Eric Lefkofsky decided to include a database and a piece of software at Tempus to fasten up the collection of important information.
The platform that was created by Eric Lefkofsky was praised by oncologists from around the world. They thanked him because of the creation of the platform that allows the oncologists to save their discoveries inside a large database that can be accessed anytime they wish. With the creation of Tempus, Eric Lefkofsky is hoping that the oncologists working 24/7 could finally develop the treatment that everyone is waiting for. Eric Lefkofsky admitted that it will be a long way before the cure for cancer can be developed, but he assured the public that Tempus is working with all the parties involved to ensure that the cure for cancer will be discovered in his lifetime.
