Personalized medicine was one of science fiction’s greatest ideas and it’s now becoming a reality thanks to a recent wave of technological breakthroughs. Eric Lefkofsky, a venture capitalist known for his many endeavors and billion dollar worth, is spearheading the whole thing with his company Tempus. Tempus is giving the world something it desperately needed and wanted. He’s making a name for himself as one of most important men in cancer research and treatment by giving people a way to come up with personalized treatment plans. With the way things are going in medicine people will almost certainly look back at Lefkofsky as a modern day pioneer.
Tempus takes into account everything about your personal history and lifestyle. They account for whatever genetics that may affect cancer outcomes and they look at any issues that may trigger unusual responses to medicine. This gives them the ability to decide which treatment plan would be the best for you. That’s an advantage everyone wants to have in medicine even thought it isn’t necessarily easy to achieve. Fortunately Tempus is working hard to give people what they need in order to survive and fight against the many forms of cancer we have yet to find decent treatments for.
Eric Lefkofsky has certainly made it clear he wants to do everything he can to help people and this is just one way to do it. He understands better than many other people that you need to put your best food forward if you plan on making any important chances to the world around you. There’s certainly a need for what he wants to bring the world and he isn’t afraid to make himself the one to change things. Tempus was not a safe bet for a business and it isn’t exactly easy to make great cancer predicting technology. In order for him to achieve what he has he had to go through many trials and find many errors. It led to what we can no see today in the growing movement towards personalized medicine. Hopefully this trend picks up and more companies follow the Tempus model.
