Eric Lefkofsky Partners To Advance Cancer Care

In its quest to achieve superior treatments for cancer care, Tempus has teamed up with Precision Health AI to become the world’s leading collection of cancer care data.

The New York-based Precision Health AI is working on an artificial intelligence (AI) oncology program for better cancer patient care. Through the collaboration Tempus gains access to the group of cancer doctors CancerLinQ treatment records on roughly 600,000 patients, according to a story at

Lefkofsky commented in a statement with the revolutionary 10-year relationship Tempus gains access to sizeable amounts of data and the company expects to set up patterns that will benefit patients.

Tempus has previously teamed up with research hospitals and clinics throughout the Chicago area and other areas in the United States on oncology practices.

Since Tempus was co-founded by Lefkofsky two years ago, the company has raised more than $100 million in venture capital and has grown to roughly 300 employees. Tempus works to challenge the care of cancer with data analytics and genetic testing.

Meanwhile, data from CancerLinQ lends a hand to oncologists and researchers in bringing together considerable sizes of information from medical records that are not typically in the same layout.

According to CancerLinQ’s board records are not always structured and by teaming up with Tempus technical know-how, improved organization and proficiency will be reached as well as the pace of services and more.

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Lefkofsky received his Juris Doctor at the University of Michigan Law School.

In addition to Tempus, his serial entrepreneurial initiatives include technology companies, LightBank, Uptake Technologies and InnerWorkings, among others. And as part of his philanthropic efforts he and his wife, Liz set up a private charitable foundation, the Lefkofsky Family Foundation, which focuses on advancing global scientific and educational organizations and foundations.

Lefkofsky is also Chairman of the Board of Steppenwolf Theatre Company and serves on the Board of Trustees of Lurie’s Children’s Hospital of Chicago and more.
