Eric Lefkofsky’s Tempus Making a Difference in Genomics

Eric Lefkofsky is the founder and CEO of the company Tempus. Tempus was an entity created that was created with the purpose of redefining how genomic data is used in clinical settings. The goal is to help benefit as many patients as possible by learning more about how genomic data that is collected can be used by providing physicians with more tools to help them treat patients more effectively.

Lefkofsky has overseen the company builds a massive, state-of-the-art facility called The Tempus Lab, which is a research and technology care clinic that helps do research to further what is known about genomics. The clinic currently samples and sequences the genomics of over 50,000 patients annually. The general sequencing procedure is complete in about two or three weeks after receiving the patient’s samples that are to be tested.

Tempus is also unique in that it works directly with the patient to help do their RNA and DNA sequencing. Tempus is always seeking to improve their capabilities to ensure they have the most cutting -edge procedures to ensure the accuracy of their genomic findings, and also strive to provide the patient with a complete picture of their genomic makeup. The ultimate result is that Tempus provides physicians with the tools to help make the most cutting-edge decision for each patient based on data-driven results and what Eric knows.

In addition to all of his excellent work as the CEO and founder of Tempus, that is not all that Eric Lefkofsky does to keep himself occupied. Lefkofsky’s accomplishments go well beyond just the Tempus agency. Lefkofsky has expanded his work into other areas, and he is also the founder and Chairman of the huge hit coupon site Groupon. In addition, Lefkofsky is also an adjunct professor at the University of Chicago and the author of “Accelerated Disruption: Understanding the True Speed of Innovation” and more information click here.
