Arizona entrepreneur Jason Hope is one of the biggest donors to the research institute called Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence or SENS Research Foundation. The goal of the non-profit organization is to build a rejuvenation biotechnology industry that will accelerate the creation of anti-aging drugs. In 2014, the organization held its annual Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference in the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency Hotel from the 21 to the 23 of August. The theme was “Emerging Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Diseases of Aging”.
At the event top industry experts spoke on a wide range of topics including ‘Advancing Regenerative Therapies in Cancer and Parkinson’s Disease’, ‘Building a Rejuvenation Biotechnology Industry’ and ‘Molecular and Cellular Damage as the Cause of the Diseases of Aging’. The key industry players there also talked about combinatorial, preventative strategies for attaining the SENS Foundation’s primary goals. Researchers, scientists, private individuals and prominent philanthropists, like Jason Hope, all support the activities of SENS. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things

Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
To support the work being done by the SENS foundation, Hope gave them a gift of $500,000 in 2010. That donation helped the innovative organization build and equip their Cambridge SENS laboratory. The funds also helped the foundation put in place a new research program focused on studying advanced glycation end products break down in human tissue. Passionate about supporting the organization, Jason Hope says their approach to anti-aging is unique. Unlike traditional medicine’s focus on treating health conditions and diseases that shorten human life, the SENS Foundation seeks to develop methods for preventing those diseases from occurring.
