Jason Hope is a futurist, philanthropist, investor, and entrepreneur who is from Scottsdale, Arizona. He is an advocate for local educational programs that inspire learning within or outside the classroom; and organizations that deal with cures, control, and prevention of diseases.Hope finished his studies at the Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Finance. He pursued his master’s in business administration (MBA) at W.P. Carey School of Business. At the onset of practicing his profession, he established a mobile communications firm. After the success of his business, he concentrates his efforts on investing in business startups, philanthropy, and biotechnology.
As the scientific community seriously starts to contemplate the function of rejuvenation biotechnologies as the answer to age-related diseases, Hope revealed that he is donating the amount of $500,000 in favor of SENS Foundation, who is currently making research progress on rejuvenation biotechnology, which looks into the inhibition of age causing diseases right before it happens.The objective of SENS is to create a framework that repairs the damage which normally accumulates in the body that may ultimately lead to the development of deadly pathogens. Their sound reasoning is because traditional medicines that address aging diseases like Alzheimer’s including lung and heart illnesses are only disseminated after the onset of the disease. But SENS would like to be able to treat the root causes of the said diseases before they occur and prevent them from materializing.
SENS has been engaged in a program called AGE-breaker. In order for a treatment or drug to fit the specifics of AGE, it must have the properties or ability to break down harmful body waste that starts a progressive form of degeneration. Age-related ailments like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, atherosclerosis occur as people get older because of biological breakdowns that normally occur as an individual grows old. Experiments have been carried out in animals but researchers discovered that there is quite a difference within the human and animal anatomy when it comes to aging. Thus, the donation made by Hope will help SENS carry the research further. The reason behind Jason Hope’s support for the work being done at SENS is his vision for the creation of a life that is not only longer, but which has more quality. He said that he totally supports the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey and he believes that the work he and his team are doing at SENS is vital to the universal problem related to human aging and the improvement of medicine in answer to such issues.
