Tempus Has Partnered with the Mayo Clinic
Tempus, a startup company created by Eric Lefkofsky to lead the charge in the fight against cancer, has partnered with the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine according to the Chicago Tribune. Lefkofsky, the co-founder of Groupon, formed the company in Chicago, Illinois in 2015. Tempus has also partnered with other health care organizations such as Northwestern University’s Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center and Rush University Medical Center. Lefkofsky stated that he is open to partnering with many more organizations in the future.
The main focus and mission of Tempus’ partnership with the Mayo Clinic is to use patient data, first and foremost, to treat and improve the survival rates of people suffering from cancer. Tempus will sequence the DNA of 1000 patients participating in research associating cancers such as lung cancer, breast cancer, lymphoma, and bladder cancer with immunotherapy and endocrine therapy. The goal is to be able to guide doctors in creating customized treatment plans in the future that are safe and effective for their patients.
Tempus will take this data, which includes the DNA sequence of the patient’s DNA and a biochemical analysis of the tumor itself and build a comprehensive library that will be able to be accessed by any physician, at anytime. Lefkofsky believes that data gathered at the molecular level, when combined into a library with the molecular data from other patients, is a powerful tool. He states that the genetic sequences stored within the library yields patterns within the DNA sequences that may indicate the presence of a mutation or change within a gene. Doctors can look to see which treatments were effective in patients with a similar mutation. The library will help guide the medical decisions that need to be made and give doctors the confidence that they are making the right decisions on behalf of their patients.
In the financial field, proper research and analysis are always essential to ensure a good outcome of the ventures that they are partaking on. The need for excellent company researchers is prominent, and Sahm Adrangi was someone who decided to capitalize on this void.

He conducted this analysis based on research about their financial background, their stock prices and a number of other prevalent factors. Exposing these companies caused them to go into severe losses, which then led to Adrangi becoming an incredibly prominent name in the industry. The companies that were involved with this were also prosecuted by Chinese officials and had to face severe action for their wrongdoings.
Today, companies all over the country depend on the services that Sahm Adrangi provides through Kerrisdale.

After thorough research and coming upon his analysis, he was able to expose the company via a live broadcast. Soon after, he also fields a case against the company with the FCC, with the hope that they would face legal action. He also met with the FCC to show them his thorough research on the matter and to better support his case. Globalstar had to face judicial action and started to witness a considerable decline in their stock prices thereon.
