Many people have developed an interest in the research on anti-aging. One of them is Jason Hope, a successful entrepreneur, investor, futurist, and philanthropist. His interest in anti-aging research has added another aspect to his futuristic tag. Just like his second name, Jason hopes that scientists will get a solution that will slow the rate of aging. In particular, the Arizona native supports research on combating diseases such as lung disease, Alzheimer’s, and heart diseases affect the different functions of the body. With time, the diseases lead to a complete shut-down of the body. According to Jason Hoppe, conventional medicine focuses on treatment rather than finding the real cause and prevention of such diseases.
In light of this, Jason provides financial and ethical support to the SENS Research Foundation. The foundation has in the recent years been active in anti-aging studies. According to Jason, SENS has adopted a unique approach that focuses on finding a cure for diseases that increase the rate of aging. It explains why he is one of the most significant contributors to SENS’ activities. The foundation’s network consists of esteemed researchers, private individuals, and philanthropists.
Jason donated $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation. He appreciates the commitment of the California-based foundation in development and access to rejuvenation biotechnologies which deal with age-related diseases. Aubrey de Grey, CSO of SENS said that the donation would fund studies on the pharmacological breaking of unwanted molecular bonds and restoration of elasticity to the body.
Indeed, donations from philanthropists like Jason will help in coming up with solutions to various medical issues. He gave another donation of $1 million for further research. The funds will enable the foundation set up a laboratory in Cambridge. The remainder will be used in starting a new research program. Although Jason is a businessman, his contributions to SENS are purely for philanthropic purposes.
