SENS Foundation is one of the biggest fighters against age-related diseases like Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Atherosclerosis. These diseases are enormously common, and because of this, almost everyone has some type of exposure to them. Unfortunately, many know just how brutal these diseases can be, but this comes with a slight silver lining. Those who have lost loved ones to these diseases, or are currently witnessing one suffer through them, have every reason to be passionate in a fight against age-related disease. But what can a single individual do to help?
Jason Hope, an entrepreneur based in Scottsdale, Arizona, donated 500,000 dollars to the SENS Foundation for the very purpose of fighting age-related disease. His donation was announced by SENS CEO, Mike Kope. Kope was understandably thrilled and pleased by this donation, and he has the following to say: “We need to create an entirely new biotech industry. That’s why we created SENS Foundation: to be a credible catalyst for change; to be a public research and outreach organization devoted to the creation of a new field – rejuvenation biotechnology.” CSO of SENS Foundation, Aubrey de Grey, who Jason Hope has spoken very well of, also had positive thoughts about the donation and the way SENS could use it: “I am delighted that Jason’s donation will fund our work on the pharmacological breaking of these unwanted molecular bonds, and the restoration of elasticity to the body’s extracellular matrix.” In other words, Aubrey de Grey believes that Hope’s donation can help push the research past the roadblocks it has recently faced, and hopefully enter a breakthrough in age-related disease.
Along with his entrepreneurial work, Jason Hope has also done writing about this area of medical science. On the website Medium, Hope has written several articles. One of the articles, titled “MitoSENS: Preventing Damage from Mitochondrial Mutations” is a scientific look at potential genetic dangers within the mitochondria. Some other articles he has written include “Death Resistance Cells” and “Extracurricular Matrix Stuffing,” both of which also offer looks at age-related disease from the technical perspective. While these scientific articles may be hard for the average person to digest, they prove Hope’s passion and dedication to this field and add another level of authenticity to his charity.

Hope, born and raised in Arizona, is now doing everything he can to help out the surrounding community and beyond. His donation to SENS Foundation obviously extends across the globe, but he also partakes in smaller charity in his local area. He has given to The Boys & Girls Club, The Andre Agassi Foundation, True Colors Fund, and many other organizations. His hard work and generosity is awesome, and seeing where he next takes his efforts will be interesting to see. If the medical community is lucky enough to see breakthroughs in age-related disease in the next several years, a big part will be in part to the help of Jason Hope. His facebook page
