Jason hope was born and raised in Arizona. He continues to live there to this day is a successful entrepreneur and a self-described futurist. This means that he is actively involved in the development of technologies which will potentially change the way that the world functions in the coming future. In particular, Jason hope has a great interest in biotechnology and its potential to help change the way that we perceive aging.
The general way that the medical industry, at least in the West, views aging is as an unavoidable process. Traditional medical treatment typically only involves the treatment of symptoms and very rarely looks at their underlying causes. Jason hope believes that if we can further our understanding of the mechanisms behind aging, it will be possible within our lifetimes to significantly slow or even reverse the process of aging itself. In an effort to help further the science necessary to achieve these kinds of possibilities Jason help has donated significant sums of money to the SENS research foundation. This stands for scientifically engineered negligible senescence. This is simply the scientific way to describe the process of the elimination of aging. This organization is led by chief science officer Aubrey de Grey.
Jason hope is donated over $1 million to the organization during its lifetime including one time where he donated $500,000 in one sum. These funds were used in order to construct a new laboratory at Cambridge University. At this laboratory, the organization began to research several new avenues to treat the process of aging potentially. One of the primary areas of research for the new laboratory are advanced glycation end products. Advanced glycation end products are a byproduct of metabolism that is naturally produced by the body. As these metabolic waste products accumulate within the human body, they can cause a number of negative health effects. For example is advanced glycation end products built up within the body both the skin and blood vessels begin to lose their elasticity. This can lead to other problems associated with aging such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and even Parkinson’s disease. The research that was conducted at the new laboratory helps to identify the primary metabolic waste products and even develop some potential solutions to their elimination from the body. Jason hope believes that within our lifetimes it will be possible to completely eliminate these metabolic byproducts and in the process significantly slow aging.
