Breast Cancer is one of the leading cancers, however there is little information out there about how different treatments work on patients. Introducing Tempus, created by Eric Lefkofsky, a revolutionary new technology. We are on a new wave to the future.
Tempus is a technology company that has created a library of molecular and clinical data with an operating system for doctors to use to analyze molecular data along with
clinical data to enable them to personalize treatment on each patient, according to how other treatments responded. There will be more chances of cures with precise treatment. Tempus is currently working with the University of Chicago, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, the Mayo Clinic, and Rush University Medical Center, Penn Medicine, and the University of Michigan to use the data to fight cancer. The hope is that this will ease patients minds about their fight with cancer, and provide a better insight for doctors.
