Jason Hope is a philanthropist based in Arizona with a passion for reducing the human suffering and making the world a better place. His primary focus has been to contribute to research that aids in lowering illness that comes with old age. He has also written an eBook that has been launched on Amazon called “Understanding the Internet-of-Things Revolution.” His book talks about the changing trend in technology and the expectations of the future of technology.
Jason Hope has ventured on an innovative approach where rather than treating the diseases that come with old age such as arthritis, high blood pressure, and cancer, he seeks on slowing down the aging process or reversing it. Jason Hope began to support the SENS Foundation in the year 2010 by making a contribution of $500,000 in December. SENS Foundation has a focus on facilitating the public to access technology that would help prevent and reduce illnesses that are age-related.
The SENS Foundation was launched about eight years ago with Aubrey De Grey as the co-founder with their office located in Mountain View, Calif. Aubrey de Grey has the same passion with Jason Hope and donated $10 million to the charity. Jason Hope was entrusted with the endorsement of strategies to combat illnesses such as diabetes.
Hope was confident that the SENS Foundation was bound to bring revolution in the field of medicine and healthcare. The Chief Executive Officer for SENS Foundation Mike Kope appreciated the contribution made by Jason Hope in their cause to combat old age related illness. Mike Kope also looked forward to the trend of biotechnology and was confident it would reenergize the people. The co-founder of the organization Aubrey de Grey correctly pointed out the purpose for the $500,000 that was contributed by Jason Hope.
He stated that the money was to be used for research work that would prevent the artery-cell proteins from compaction. This research work is very vital as it would help understand how to prevent high blood pressure, skin deterioration, eye problems and diabetes as it would prevent arteries from hardening. The donations made by Jason Hope would help reduce human suffering by developing medications known as AGE breakers.
The drugs would help to eliminate the end products of glycation that accumulates in the body as one grows older. This research is yet to see a breakthrough in the way that it would benefit people but has already succeeded on small animals. Furthermore, researchers have identified an end product in the body known as glucosepane that enhance aging and cause various health issues.
