Eric Lefkofsky: An American Hero Amongst Us

Founded by one of the most well-known marketers known in chicago, Mr. Eric Lefkofski’s Tempus Labs continues to rank on the top 10 health tech start-ups list without fail. That is not easy! What makes this feat even more exceptional, is that Tempus Labs is a fledgling company of a mere 3-years of age, and has still made that list over similar companies that are much, much older! In fact, Tempus was the featured company on Eric Topal’s exclusive list focusing only on the best of the best in technological advancement.

In addition to being brilliant, Mr. Lefkoski has inspired many with his impassioned connections to nearly all of the NCI’S (National Cancer Institute) cancer centers nationwide. The NCI values his expertise tremendously and utilises the many services offered by Tempus Labs such as: tumor and germline DNA sequencing, liquid biopsying of cell-free DNA, RNA sequencing of tumors, immune system characterization of both patients and tumors, organoid cultures of tumors at a cellular level with drug testing, machine-learning of the myriads info collected, which is then organized and seamlessly ingrained into both the electronic medical record and imagery/pathology reports.

Thanks to Eric Lufkowski and the company he founded Tempus has changed the lives of many patients who had previously untreatable diseases. Untreatable, that is, until Tempus refined gene therepy and editing. Not too long thereafter, the FDA put its stamp of approval on this new methodology, enriching the lives of those with (or the potential risk of) extensive vision loss due to a certain gene mutation. Thanks to Mr. Lufkofski, this can now be treated effectively long before complete blindness sets in.

Lufkofski’s goals for the future includes skin cancer and atrial fibrillation technology that will highlight very detailed and specific characteristics; it is his goal to use this technology to zoom in on the exactly what treatments and which specialists are needed to improve patient conditions. He further hopes to develop advancements that hasten treatment times in the event of an outbreak or public health crises.

These are only a few of Eric Lufkowksis contributions so far to the the world in which we live. Not only is he an accomplished author who spreads his knowledge to any who seek it, but because of his brilliance and passion to help the sick, he has improved healthcare system and applications in ways never before seen. He is a philanthropist at heart, and by sheer genetics he gravitates toward helping the most vulnerable among us, including those who receive care from Lurie Childrens hospital in Chicago. Lefkovski also invests tremendous time,money and energy into his Lefkofky Foundation which desires to improve human rights, education, medicine, culture and art in order that all of our lives may be further enriched.
