Conventionally, traditional wisdom dictates that aging is completely unavoidable and is only a part of the human development process. Scientists at the SENS, however, are attempting to find new means to challenge the age-old wisdom. While they are not trying to find a live forever formula, SENS researchers hope to use rejuvenation biotechnologies to eliminate the usual aging frailness. This has got passionate individuals like Jason Hope excited.
The Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) Foundation, has ambitiously set its eyes on creating a longer and quality life for the human race. The terminology “Negligible Senescence” implies the absence of aging characteristics or symptoms. The nonprofit foundation launched in 2009, has been a beneficiary of Jason Hope’s many contributions.
In 2010, Jason Hope’s five hundred thousand dollar gift enabled the SENS foundation build and equip the Cambridge SENS laboratory. The gift also saw the implementation of the new research program focused on breaking down advanced glycation end products in human tissues commence. The gift has been followed by many more donations in the past few years.
It is the approach to the treatment of ailments that break down the body and speed up aging that attract Jason Hope to the SENS Foundation. The focus on finding preventive cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s rather than treatment is in Jason’s view the future of medicine. Through rejuvenation biotechnologies, Jason Hope looks to a time that damages caused by body metabolism overtime can be repaired.
Jason Hope was born in Tempe, Arizona. He pursued his Finance degree at Arizona State University before proceeding to the W.P. Carey School of Business at the Arizona State University for a Master of Business Administration degree. Hope is a passionate philanthropist who focuses on donations to educational and scientific institutions. He donates to institutions conducting research in various fields such as cancer and leukemia. Some of the organizations that have benefited from his donations include the Boys and Girls Club, Family Health International, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the World Health Organization. His many predictions on the overall trends in technology have rightfully earned him the title of a futurist.
As an individual who understands technological trends, Hope has led the way in the development of essential applications and software. His involvement with SENS is in tandem with his philanthropic nature and his passion for solutions to problems afflicting mankind. His futuristic stance also reflects his firm belief that rejuvenation biotechnology is the next big thing in medical technology.
