Throughout the years doctors and scientist have been trying to research and develop new ways to help fight diseases that will ultimately end a person’s life. But, a charitable organization called SENS Foundation has been trying to fight the root of many of these diseases and with the help of philanthropist and entrepreneur, Jason Hope, they are slower getting closer.
In 2010 Jason Hope donated half a million dollars towards the research done by SENS to help fight the roots of aging and improve the quality of life for people all over the world. Ultimately many diseases and issues that arise in our life is due plainly to aging. With Jason Hope’s donation to the foundation they will be using these funds to research programs to help learn about what causes us to age and how to slow down the process. For example they are trying to figure out how to keep artery cells from bonding which causes high blood pressure.
To most of us, talking about slowing the aging process and prolonging human life sounds like pure fiction, but, that is exactly the type of thinking that founder of the SENS Research Foundation, Aubrey De Grey is trying to counter because he absolutely believes it is possible. Jason Hope praises the work done by Grey and his team of researchers over the years for their ways of helping to fight diseases such as Alzheimer’s. But, what is we could learn how to prevent it all together? What if we could eradicate a terrible disease like this forever?
While most medical research aims to treat diseases, Grey and his team are trying to do more. Their research involves trying to discover the underlying causes for diseases to be able to prevent them from happening at all. This type of research does not only benefit certain classifications of people but every single one of us, world wide. Aging is something that ultimately happens to everyone, but Hope believes that aiding in the research done by SENS Foundation could one day prolong human life by hundreds of years.
Jason Hope does not only limit his donations to just one foundation either. Because he has made a living being an entrepreneur and investor in his life he has donated to more than just anti aging research but also educational non profits also many of which are located locally. This gives Hope the ability to be present in these charities and his work.
