Tempus Labs, a Chicago based company for the last two years has been working their hardest to use machine learning and other techniques to really fully understand every aspect of a cancer patients tumor. Using these techniques can help to personalize treatment for each patient to best fit their needs when it comes to their tumor and where it is located. Tempus works with many different cancer-fighting groups such as the University of Chicago, Mayo Clinic, and many other groups to help them get farther with their research and learn more information about helping their patients with their treatment plans.
Recently Tempus Labs has raised $80 million in unicorn funding to help them in their mission to help patients and their families when it comes to personalizing treatment plans more specifically based on one’s tumor. Tempus Lab’s mission is to take care of their patients and their loved ones and accommodate their needs more than most of the other cancer technology research companies out there do. The first thing on the employees of Tempus Lab’s minds is how they can best help out a patient.
Tempus Labs has a huge growing team of over 4,000 employees and grows by about 30 new employees each month. With the help of more funding, Tempus Labs is hoping to grow the number of employees hired over time to more than 30 a month. Tempus Labs would not be where it is today without the help of Co-founder Eric Lefkofsky. Eric Lefkofsky makes it his mission to make sure that everything runs smoothly at Tempus Labs and to help in the process of battling cancer as much as possible. Eric Lefkofsky is a co-founder of Tempus Labs for many reasons but his main two reasons are that he has first-hand experience with a loved one undergoing cancer treatments and he also believes that it is important to improve cancer treatments and their effectiveness.
Tempus Labs will continue its mission to make a difference in patients lives when it comes to their cancer treatment plans and will also work hard to make the experience better for those who may have cancer in the future.
With oil being one of the top commodities always in demand, companies are always striving to find new ways to speed up the drilling, pipeline delivery and shipping process. There never is any room to fall behind in it, and one of the world’s leading drilling contractors is Nabors Industries, a publicly-traded company based in Houston. Their success in drilling innovation and always being in the lead when it comes to strategic partnerships is because Tony Petrello has used his great acumen while serving as Chief Executive Officer. Petrello is always in the know with the company’s research and development teams, and he has the ability to solve problems and find solid agreements when it comes to closing deals.
Tony Petrello oversees the deployment of some of the largest rig systems both in land-based operations and on offshore modules. Nabors’ holdings include the M-800 and M-1000 automated rigs with advanced analytics software and drilling data gathering. They’ve also made a big acquisition which has benefited stockholders with Tesco, and there’ll be a lot more production coming as part of their upcoming partnership with Saudi Aramco. Petrello has always had a high annual base salary, but in 2013 when a new compromise with shareholders saw a contract restructuring, his total compensation reached $68 million, the highest any CEO received that year.
Tony Petrello made his connections to get where he is today at Nabors Industries through an outstanding job as a lawyer who represented the company among other clients at Baker & McKenzie. His law practice was preceded by studying advanced math for several years at Yale University. Most of his fellow students there thought he would become a professional mathematician, but something about corporate and finance law caught his interest, so he got his JD at Harvard and spent 13 years in the field. Petrello had become managing partner of Baker & McKenzie before leaving for Nabors Industries.
Tony Petrello is perhaps even more dedicated to philanthropy as he is his career. His life was changed when his daughter Carena was born because she had a rare brain problem that has affected her life permanently. She has cerebral palsy and Tony and his wife Cynthia have gone through difficult times accepting that she won’t have the same privileges other children have had. But they both love Carena and they both decided they could take their hardship and turn it into passion to do good. That passion is giving to the Texas Children’s Hospital where professionals at a neurological research center are at work possibly finding a cure for cerebral palsy at this very moment. Petrello has given TCH’s health foundation $7 million.

The aging process has tried to be defied since the beginning of humankind. Today, there are more “anti-aging” products on the shelves than ever before. But the problem with all of the anti-aging technology is, it only covers up the aging process at best.
Science is on the edge of a break through for age stopping technology, that actually works. Researchers have been working hard, seemingly with much success, at breathing new life into cells by eliminating cells that have stopped dividing so new, replicating cells can take their place. If this process works, it would effectively end the aging process and allow a person to live indefinitely. Of course, this person would still be susceptible to death from other causes, but old age would never be one of them.
Lead researcher Crystal Hunt suggested the chances of developing this fountain are as high as 80%. However, these are grandiose claims and realistically, this technology as yet to be successful, even in mice. Only time will tell if this path to timelessness is on our horizon.
