Anti-aging is not only significant because of its future usage in cosmetics. The result of anti-aging is also important when it comes to curing diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, as well as healing up cellular and molecular damage. One of the advocates of anti-aging is the SENS Research Foundation, which is also the institute that hosts the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference each year. Jason Hope has been helping the institute for the past years. As a support for the researches of SENS Research Foundation, Jason Hope donated $500,000 to the institute. This donation was used to construct additional laboratory at the Cambridge SENS Lab. In one of his interviews, Hope stated that he is pleased to help in the research of the institute.
Also, he is very happy to help an organization which focuses on fighting against degenerative diseases which destroy the body. He also used Alzheimer’s disease and lung disease as examples to point out the importance of anti-aging technology. One of the programs that the SENS Research Foundation developed is the AGE-Breaker. This program learned and utilized how to break down advanced glycation end products, or AGEs. An AGE is a waste that our body creates out of metabolic function and can lead to degenerative processes. According to SENS’ researches, AGE is linked to age-related diseases which include osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s.
Jason Hope stated how researches for these problems are too little even though the benefits of such researches will be big breakthroughs. That’s why he feels that this area is worth investing to inspire others to also donate. Jason Hope is a known entrepreneur, philanthropist, and an investor and was from Tempe, Arizona. he attended Arizona State University for his degree in Finance. After that, he continued to further improve his skills by getting an MBA from W.P. Carey School of Business. Hope currently resides at Scottsdale where he oversees some of his businesses and projects. He is also a passionate believer in technology and is one of the people who believe that the Internet of Things is the next big technological breakthrough in the near future.
