Patrick Soon-Shiong made his fortune buiding and then selling two successful drug companies for $8.5 billion. Now he’s working to revolutionize patient care by bringing Big Data to medicine through new company: NantWorks. Its algorithms can analyze data contained in a human genome in 47 seconds; the company also has two cancer drugs in development.
