Jason Hope is an Arizona-based entrepreneur who is widely known for his contribution to the welfare of others. As a successful business owner and entrepreneur, he is passionate about giving back to his society by supporting local organizations in Arizona and providing support to humanitarian organizations that are researching to help improve the future of mankind.
When it comes to age-related illnesses, Hope believes modern medicine is more reactive than proactive. For that reason, he has resolved to use much of his philanthropy efforts including his time, money, and influence to support proactive initiatives like the one SENS Foundation is advancing.
SENS Foundation is a non-profit organization launched in 2007 to tackle age-related illnesses head on. Since its foundation, this organization has been a leading driving force in rejuvenation biotechnology, a line of research that focuses particularly on finding practical solutions for age-related diseases.
Jason Hope donated half a million dollars to this organization on 2010, and since then, he has been one of their most supportive partners. SENS used this donation to establish their Cambridge laboratory and implement new research plans. Apart from lending his financial support, Hope also plays a leading role in the outreach efforts of this group.
Hope believes that his involvement with SENS will ultimately help them redefine the role of pharmaceutical and biotech industries. He considers that nothing can represent the future of human health more than rejuvenation biotechnologies. This approach of anti-aging is geared more towards discovering ways of preventing diseases so as to create a longer, better quality life, and less towards treating diseases.
Normal metabolism gradually damages the body of human beings, and this, in turn, leads to the devastating diseases that are associated with old age. Hope holds that the only way to combat this problem is use SENS approach since is can repair all this damage before deadly pathologies develop naturally in the body of an individual.
With regards to supporting similar initiates, especially this anti-aging research, Hope is not alone. The number of wealthy innovators putting their hard earned millions of dollars in this project has been increasing by the day since its inception. Billionaire Peter Thiel who is widely known for co-founding PayPal has contributed a substantial amount of money to the SENS Foundation over the years. In 2006 when SENS wanted resources to fund their pilot research projects, Thiel made his initial contribution of $3.5 million to help them realize this goal.
