Eric Lefkofsy is Navigating the Maze of Cancer Information

Advancements in innovative therapies for incurable diseases such as cancer present multiple challenges for scientific research. With the development of advanced technologies in data management, oncologists have access to thousands of case studies. Sorting through all the research available can result in an endless maze of pharmacologic measures, radiation treatment modalities, stem cell applications, and multiple gene therapy outcomes. Renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist, Eric Lefkofsky, has aligned partnerships to create and organize data platforms enabling access to better treatment outcomes for cancer patients.

Co-founded by Lefkofsky in 2015, Tempus, Inc. has become one of the top ten health technology companies in Chicago. The company’s number one goal is to organize and consolidate information regarding better treatment options, one of the largest weapons in the “Fight Against Cancer’s” arsenal. The recent partnership between Tempus and Precision Health AI, an artificial intelligence company out of New York, allows for access to a database containing over 600,000 treatment outcomes for patients, otherwise known as CancerLinQ. which was created by the American Society of Clinical Oncologists.

In addition to this partnership, Tempus has developed contracts with approximately 50 of the top cancer research facilities, including the Mayo Clinic, University of Michigan, Northwestern, Cleveland Clinic, and the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. The ending result is a vast network of prior outcomes information correlated with patient data down to the molecular level. This integration enables cancer specialists to deliver tailor-made treatment modalities to their patients.

The accomplishment of improved data analytics for cancer treatment comes as no surprise given Eric Lefkofsky’s repertoire of prior. A visionary in the e-commerce marketplace, media advertising, and disruptive technologies in capital ventures, Eric has founded and co-founded multiple data analytic platform companies such as Uptake, Lightbank, and Mediabank. He is most commonly known as the co-founder of Groupon, a global internet marketplace, providing cost-saving technology to consumers everywhere.

Improving the quality of life for everyone within their service area is a top priority for Lefkofsky. His philanthropic efforts are concentrated in the preservation of human rights, research initiatives to improve education and medical advancements, and the arts. In 2006, Eric and his wife, Liz founded the Lefkofsky Family Foundation for this purpose.


The Ever-Expanding Town Residential and New York’s Expanding Market

In an article by Daniel Geiger from Crain’s New York, he writes about the Town Residential brokerage firm. The company had opened up its 10th location in 2013. The ever-expanding real estate development group opened up its first location in 2010.

The location is along the Hudson River, and it has close access to Central Park. This area has been an important area for investors, who have recently been developing along this region with such properties as high-rise condos, or commercial space for artists. Town Residential has leased an entire floor of W. 14th St, and it has leased the location for fifteen years. The location also has a great access to the High Line, so it is an accessible access point for brokers who want to show properties, but who also want to be appealing to the time it takes to these properties. Along with close access to the High Line, the location is poised for high-end sales. The Chief Executive, Andrew Heiberger hopes that the location will also have its own distinct personal flair that he would like to be known for in New York.

Along with the location in the West Side, it also opened a location in Greenwich Village. Both locations have been opened to expand the locations in which Town Residential can expand its presence on the expanding New York City real estate market.

Town Residential was founded in 2010 by Andrew Heiberger, and it specializes in residential real estate in New York City. They have a partnership with a real estate development firm called Joseph Sitt’s Thor Equities, who are also the landlords to Town Residential W.14th street location. Also, Crain’s New York named Town Residential as one of the Top 50 Places to Work in New York City. In 2013, Town Residential purchased Thomas & Ingram, which helped Town Residential boost its presence in the West Village, because that is where Thomas & Ingram had its main focus on sales.

Andrew Heiberger is also the founder of Citi Habitats, which is a brokerage firm that has a focus on rentals, but he sold it to NRT, which is the largest brokerage firm in the United States.



Info on Wasseem Boraie

The modern, educated man is concerned about the economy. This concern stretches to both the national economy as well as the local economy. Unfortunately, people sometimes overlook the importance of the local economy. But the nation is compromised of several regions, each of which has its’ own local economy that needs to be prosperous and bring jobs and widen the market on its’ own. Cities that have a successful university or a few major pieces of real estate a more likely to have flourishing small businesses and wealthy citizens. So, when a real estate giant such as Wasseem Boraie brings his projects to Newark, as has been reported in this article, it is an exciting time.

Several Projects
If a local economy is going to be enhanced, it is not enough for there to be one large project. One large project is more vulnerable to failure than several smaller projects. After all, if something happens, such as a financial collapse or a natural disaster that compromises that one business, then everything that the city was hangings its’ hopes on will collapse with it. So, argues Boraie, it is far more important for the city to concern itself with several smaller projects. That is why he is currently involved in at least ten real estate development projects.

Why Newark?
Individuals who are educated in real estate know where to invest their business. Since Boraie wants to develop a 168 unit residential high-rise, he thinks that the location is everything. Residential consumers are not going to come to a big city for a single project. However, Newark would be more receptive to this sort of project. That is why he chose it for this particular project. This will help to enhance the local economy and bring jobs to Newark.
