Modern medicine has not covered much ground in the context of age-related illnesses: it is reactive rather than proactive. Diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart and lung disease, diabetes and cancer, have all been approached from a curative point by popular schools of thought. Jason Hope a futurist entrepreneur, has come out to challenge this perspective, seeking to prevent such diseases rather than cure them. In so doing, diseases that limit life by fast-tracking aging can be dealt with, leading to longer and more productive lives. This is the vision that Jason Hope holds.
In making contributions to anti-aging research, Hope has contributed to the ongoing Strategies for the Engineered Negligible Senescence research effort. In 2010, Hope contributed $500,000 to the foundation. This money has gone into building and equipping the foundation’s Cambridge laboratory as well as kick-starting a program focused on the disintegration of advanced glycation end products. SENS Foundation is also focusing its resources on advancing regenerative therapies in Parkinson’s and Cancer, studying cellular damage as the primary cause of diseases associated with ageing and researching on rejuvenation biotech. By so doing, the research will assume a new approach to anti-aging. As opposed to acting in a responsive capacity, the goal is to bolster the immunity of the whole human body since diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect all functions. This has largely been assisted by Jason Hope’s financial contribution to the research. Hope is also a vocal contributor to the anti-aging discourse. He hopes to be a source of inspiration for potential contributors to the research.
Jason Hope is a futurist, entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. Born in Tempe, Arizona, Hope attended Arizona State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance.
