Jason hope is one of the most prominent entrepreneurs and philanthropist in Arizona. He has a strong passion for technology and for giving back to those around him. Jason grew up in the city of Tempe Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in finance and went on to get a Masters in business administration from the same school. He is active in politics as they relate to businesses in his home state and is currently working on anti-aging research initiatives.Over the years and Jason help us become more and more interested in philanthropy. The causes that he chooses to support are those that he is passionate about. Perhaps the most important of his philanthropic causes is that undertaken by the SENS foundation. This is a research organization which is dedicated towards anti-aging. This is not just a simple extension of life but the creation of longer better quality lives.
The SENS Foundation is dedicated towards finding cures for conditions that cause the body to break down and age the human being faster than is normal. Traditionally the medical field treats these diseases as they occur rather than focusing on the prevention of them.By supporting the scientific research being done by these organizations Jason hope believes that he can help find techniques and medications that can help prevent these diseases from ever being a problem.The research that is being undergone at the SENS foundation emphasizes regenerative medicine with the ultimate goal of repairing underlying damage to the body. They hope to help create a new industry that will end the disease of aging. The name of the organization is an acronym that stands for strategies for engineered negligible senescence.
This is merely a formality describing the aim of the organizations or research goals. Negligible senescence refers to a condition in which aging is insignificant. It was originally used to describe animals such as the lobster which simply does not age. These creatures have the same physical capabilities over the course of their entire lives. There is no progressive age-related pathologies found in these organisms. Humans, on the other hand, do display age-related decline in their physical capabilities. By developing rejuvenation, biotechnologies is the hope of the organization that they can apply regenerative medicine to the molecular structure of human beings and reverse the damages caused by aging. In effect, this would allow us to get older without becoming sick or frail.
