Tempus announced an upcoming partnership with the University of Chicago Medicine to provide analysis and molecular sequencing to breast cancer specialists of Chicago so that they can create personalized treatment plans for patients. Data on breast cancer, one of the most common cancers is relatively less accessible to patients. Chicago-based Tempus is working towards giving doctors at the University data to enable them to offer better treatment to breast cancer patients.
Tempus made a proposition to analyze data from about 1,000 breast cancer patients. The data would help health researchers and doctors uncover patterns which predict how patients respond to treatment. Over time, this gathered data will assist in improving patient outcomes and bettering treatment. Lack of sufficient information on the disease forces physicians to make treatment decisions without sufficient specific genetic information. Therefore, this program by Tempus will enable doctors to make correct and more informed decisions. Tempus uses genomic sequencing and machine learning to help doctors make real-time as well as personalized treatment decisions. Tempus is not only partnering with UChicago but also with the Mayo Clinic, Rush University Medical Center, the University of Michigan and Penn Medicine to use data to fight cancer.

Eric has co-founded other companies like Mediaocean, an integrated media procurement technology provider, Lightbank, a venture fund investing in disruptive technology, EchoLogistics, a technology-enabled transportation outsourcing firm, InnerWorkings, a managed print and promotional solutions provider and Uptake, a predictive analytics platform for the world’s largest industries.Eric Lefkofsky is also involved in charity. In 2006, he, together with his wife Liz established the Lefkofsky Foundation. The main aim was to advance high-impact initiatives which would save lives in the community.

What really makes a woman beautiful? The word “beauty” is one of the most misunderstood words in the English language. The cliché, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” couldn’t be further from the truth. Perception is the key word. Every person has a very different perception of beauty. Everyone has different likes and dislikes, and this has a tremendous impact on our definition of beauty.
The Role of a Cosmetic Surgeon
Cosmetic surgeons wear many different hats throughout their day. They have the difficult job of counseling people about their perception of beauty because there is often a fine line between the truth and reality. People of all ages search out the help of cosmetic surgeons in hopes of becoming their ideal perception of beauty. Unfortunately, many are disappointed when they realize although there can be an improvement in what they don’t like about themselves, cosmetic surgeons aren’t able to transform them into a different person. Although results can be dramatic after a cosmetic procedure, they won’t repair what is truly bothering a person if it is more than skin deep.
While it’s true some surgeons specialize in procedures driven to enhance a patient’s appearance, there are others who specialize in reconstructive surgeries.
