How Eric Lefkofsky is Improving the Treatment of Cancer

Eric Lefkofsky is an American entrepreneur who has founded many successful business ventures. He recently cofounded Tempus, Inc, where he serves as the Chief Executive Officer. The goal of starting Tempus is to create an extensive database of cancer patients that doctors can use as a reference to cure others in future. He got the drive to help other cancer patients to be cured successfully when his wife had breast cancer. Eric noticed that most hospitals did not have the required data to use in the treatment of disease. He acknowledged that these physicians could make better treatments if they had data to refer to hence Tempus was established.

Tempus is a technological company that focuses on amassing tons of clinical and genomic data from treatments of cancer patients and making that data available to multiple users. To achieve this, they are building the World’s most extensive library of molecular and clinical data with an efficient operating system. This data will enable doctors to borrow insight to treat their patients from previous similar cases. The company analyses a person’s genomic structure to understand it at a molecular level and also compile other patient reports like scans, pathology images, clinical notes and lab reports.

This data is then analysed in their platform to enable physicians to make decisions based on data. In his latest fundraiser for Tempus, Eric Lefkofsky has raised over $70 million from investors who support his mission of curing cancer. With millions of people affected by cancer, Tempus faces stiff competition that they will survive due to their meaningful purpose. Eric is a philanthropist who supports charitable, educational and scientific causes around the world through his philanthropic fund, the Lefkofsky Foundation. The fund has helped more than 50 organisations achieve their goals. He is a trustee to various organisations and a part-time professor at the University of Chicago.

Turosi: The Merger of OSI Industries & Turi Foods

The foodservice industry is thriving right about now, and it has been this way for a long time. Companies have come and gone throughout the years, but OSI Industries has been one of the driving forces that has propelled the food service industry to its current position. This fascinating field of work won’t be going out of business anytime soon because everyone has to eat. OSI Industries offer a wide variety of foods, has well-over 60 advanced facilities and is worth more than $6 billion. Thanks to great leadership and ambition, this Illinois-based food processor has taken the next to expand its business.

As of May 7, 2018, OSI Industries and Turi Foods have decided to play ball together. Both of the companies are well-known throughout the industry, and both of the companies share the same goals. Turi Foods is an Australian-based food supplier, and it offers plenty of goods for quick-serve restaurants, roast chicken outlets, supermarkets and specialty chicken retailors. Building a world-class food solutions company is the goal. Turi Foods is actually headquartered in Thomastown, Victoria, Australia. OSI Industries just so happen to be headquartered in Aurora, Illinois. Though the two food suppliers are located on different continents, they will progressively and efficiently work together as Turosi.

This conglomerate of businesses will definitely reshape the food service landscape for the better. “Both of the companies have built strong reputations within this field of work,” said David McDonald, president of OSI. From mergers to acquisitions, OSI has mastered this game better than other global food providers. The company also specializes in the production of custom foods, and it provides superior food safety. It would be very hard trying to find another food processor that posses this much clout. In the end, OSI Industries is the standard by which all others are measured.
