Jason Hope has shown numerous interest in technological innovation. Recently, Jason Hope has been talking about the internet of things and how it will be the next technological venture. However, the internet of things is not the only thing that has Jason’s attention, but also anti-aging research. SENS Research Foundation has a goal to create a rejuvenation biotechnology industry that will accelerate drug development in broad-based collaboration of damage-repair expertise. This kind of research involves multiple subjects such as Advancing Regenerative Therapies in Cancer and Parkinson’s Disease, Molecular and Cellular Damage from Aging, and biotechnology that helps prevent age-related diseases.
SENS Foundation is a non-profit organization that is supported by private individuals, researchers and scientist, and other philanthropists. Jason Hope is one of SENS biggest contributor. Jason Hope donated $500,000 to SENS in 2010 which allowed SENS to implement a new research program that aims to break down advanced glycation end products in human tissue. This program is called AGE-breaker. An AGE is a type of metabolic waste that builds up in the body and initiates degenerative processes. AGEs are related to age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, and Parkinson’s disease. Jason Hope believes that there is not enough research being conducted to develop effective treatments. Therefore, he feels that it is worth the investment if a breakthrough is discovered.

AGE research faced many challenges in the past two decades. However, researchers finally found a human AGE that is connected to many degenerative diseases called glucosepane. This discovery has given them a clearer direction in research. Therefore, Jason’s may be seeing a return on his investment.
Jason Hope explains that he is passionate about supporting SENS and their goal because they are taking a different approach to anti-aging research. Jason likes that they are focused on cures and preventative measures to diseases that cause people to age faster than they should. Examples are Alzheimer’s disease and lung disease. Traditionally, medicine looks at treating diseases after they have occurred. However, Jason and SENS have a mutual goal to focus on stopping diseases that make you age faster from ever occurring.
