Jason Hope wants AGE to Change how People Age

Jason Hope is a futurist. He is also a well-known technology guru. He has a knack for predicting the future use of science in its relation to business and society. As a matter of fact, he wholeheartedly believes that the Internet of Things is going to be the next technological process that will impact the future economy.

While Mr. Hope really enjoys technology, he also is fond of medical research and what it can do to improve the quality of life. Cellular regeneration is one area of medical research that Mr. Jason Hope is very excited about. The reason why is that he believes that cellular regeneration is the key to slowing down the aging process.

No one can completely stop a person from growing older. Hope does not expect that. However, he does believe that people should grow older at a much slower pace. He is a firm believer in this process. He also realizes that some research organizations have the ability to perform this process. The Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence Research Foundation or SENS is a leading organization that is carrying out this type of work.

SENS performs a series of research related to AGEs or advanced glycation end-products. Ages are compounds that are generated within the human body through chemical reactions. They are a byproduct of these reactions. They usually form when certain amino acids connect with sugars. SENS researchers realize that AGEs are linked to many of the harmful diseases that people are prone to get once they start to grow older.

Diseases related to the heart, liver and kidneys are influenced by AGEs compounds. Even conditions such as cancer is also impacted by the amount of AGEs products found within the body. Hope wants SENS researchers to figure out how to eliminate or at least slow down these harmful materials. He knows that young people typically do not struggle with AGEs products. So, he believes that SENS researchers will find a way to mitigate this substance.

Hope has given millions for this research project. He wants this organization to find success. Hope knows that if a solution can be found, it will revolutionize how people live their lives. Hope firmly believes that this medical research is going to help define how humanity will exist in the future.

Eric Lefkofsky Advances Cancer Treatment

Eric Lefkofsky Advances Cancer Treatment

Cancer has now become a more pronounced disease as it was before. According to statistics, people living with cancer make 40% of the population in the US. The number of people living with cancer is expected to increase as years go by. Cancer treatment has, therefore, become crucial to all health facilities aiming at offering treatment at all levels. Tempus has advanced cancer treatment by improving data collection and technology used in hospitals. Tempus is led by Erick Lefkofsky who is the co-founder of this company.

Eric Lefkofsky’s idea of collecting more detailed and reliable data about cancer patients struck his mind after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. It is at this point that Erick realized a big gap that existed between data collection and technology. He realized that a lot of data are collected about cancer patients but the information collected is not channeled in a streamlined way to make use of it during cancer treatments. Despite that technology was embraced in hospitals, this technology had not been incorporated in data collection and research analysis.

Tempus came in as a result of those gaps that were discovered by Lefkofsky aiming at transforming how cancer care was delivered to patients. Tempus has created a platform that effectively analyzes patients’ molecular as well as clinical data that has made cancer treatments more accurate and efficient. This company also developed soft wares for analytical work but obtaining clinical and medical data for analysis was initially a problem.

The company also faced another problem whereby the information or rather data collected about cancer patients was stored as progress notes. The data was inform of free text field that made it difficult to capture the information and analyze it efficiently. Fortunately, Tempus has developed soft wares such as optical character recognition capabilities and natural language processing that collects pertinent notes that are quickly transformed into structured data that help advance cancer treatment and care.

Cancer treatment has been advanced by Tempus whereby molecular and cellular data has now been involved in their analytical work. According to Tempus, human genes hold clues of what is happens to the body cells and therefore genome sequencing can make it easier and more efficient in fighting cancer disease. Tempus has made it easy for doctors to pair a specific type of cancer with the appropriate treatment hence improving the prognosis of cancer treatments.

Erick Lefkofsky is the co-founder and the CEO of Tempus. He was born in 1969 and studied at the University of Michigan where he acquired his degree in law in the year 1993.Even though he attained high qualifications in law, Erick was swept in the Dot.com revolution where he emerged as an influential player in the Tempus Company. He spends most of his time in Chicago as this is where Tempus is located.

Eric is also a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of business teaching a course on Entrepreneurship. He has also written a business book about how technology affects business. The work of Tempus has brought advanced cancer treatment globally hence improving the lives of cancer patients.
