Jason Hope is a renowned futurist and entrepreneur from Scottsdale, AZ. After graduating from Arizona State University, Hope turned his attention toward developing a mobile communications company known as JAWA. Through his early success and deliberate hard work, Hope was able to craft a reputation for himself as a skilled futurist and renowned entrepreneur. With this kind of early success, Hope turned toward developing his passions and of those passions, his focus would turn to biotechnology. Biotechnology is clearly the way of the future in the medical field and Hope believes that biotech can be the key to unlocking quality as we age. In 2010, Jason Hope decided to partner up with the SENS Foundation and since then they have been steadily working to change the world forever.
The SENS Foundation is a non-profit research facility based out of California that is uniquely focused on addressing problems inherent to aging. Age-related illness, be it Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, has been a tragic part of human life but people are starting to realize that it doesn’t have to be. While every year our average lifespan goes up, our quality of life hasn’t been adjusting accordingly. The prominence of age-related illness was something that struck Hope as uniquely confusing. Why not use technology to address these issues?
After extensive research, Hope would come to learn of the SENS Foundation. Hope would meet up with Dr. Aubrey de Grey, the CSO at the SENS Foundation, and the two would almost immediately begin to hit it off. Hope and Dr. de Grey both realized early on in life that age-related disease does not need to be a fact of how we live and how our human experience is governed. Hope and Dr. de Grey would eventually agree to work together in a fashion and Hope would sign off on an incredible donation of $500,000.
The charitable donation that Jason Hope gave to the SENS Foundation was immediately put into work. Hope’s donation would go to addressing the reality of Arteriosclerosis, a problem related to the hardening of arteries as we age and corresponding hypertension. Dr. de Grey has used the donation for research into preventing these cell proteins from bonding and hardening and with any luck, we could see a world-changing discovery. While this is just one issue addressed by the SENS Foundation, it is a rather important one and we remain excited about their future discoveries.
