The Philanthropy of Jason Hope in Supporting Anti-Aging Research Efforts

Posted on May 5, 2018

Health-related issues have plagued the human race for a long time, from infants to the elderly, all have felt the effects of minor ailments to life-threatening diseases. The effects seem to affect individuals severely as they age regardless of their health, life habits or place of origin. It has become acceptable to most people that as they age, their bones become weak, their skin becomes wrinkled and rigid, even losing the vigor and vitality of their youthful days. The elderly suffer decreased quality of life due to diseases such as cancer, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and arthritis among others.

However, Jason Hope believes the case should not be as it is. He says that, despite the medical field best efforts in treating these conditions, the focus should be on preventing them. Medical professionals have been training and helping patients on how to cope with these diseases a process Jason says should come second after addressing the root causes of these conditions.

To this course, he has supported organizations with efforts linked to reversing or slowing down aging through philanthropy. In 2010, he donated $500,000 to SENS Foundation that avails to the public important biotechnologies which prevent fore-mentioned aging-related diseases, and that counter the aging process. Using as well as studying living organisms in research, SENS Foundation comes up with life-improving products in a bid to transform and treat age-related diseases.

SENS Foundation approach to aging is extensive, and Jason Hope praised them for funding other institutions such as Yale, Harvard, and Cambridge in similar research efforts. Moreover, they engage politicians and influential people in outreach efforts on aging.

SENS chief medical officer Aubrey de Grey said Jason Hope’s donation will go towards the development of AGE-breakers medications. Advanced glycation end-products are the ones that cause the veins and the skin to be rigid causing high blood pressure after they accumulate in the flesh. Eliminating them would reverse the aging process. SENS Foundation has identified glucosepane as the main glycation end-product that causes aging and related health conditions.

Scientists can reverse aging, is a firm conviction that Jason Hope has. His concern for aging goes to helping Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with donations for people with age-related conditions. After university, Jason Hope pursued a master’s in business administration before founding numerous tech firms that flourished. He accumulated good returns that allow him to make donations and philanthropic gestures. He also offers business consultancy services with a notable interest in the internet of things, education and politics.
