For the most part, human beings view the process of aging as a natural event that is unavoidable for all regardless of how healthy a person chooses to live their life. It is a generally accepted that fact that bones will eventually break down, the skin will grow wrinkled, and many activities that are enjoyed in a person’s youth will become off limits to them.
Jason Hope is an entrepreneur and philanthropist that does not subscribe to this notion. Hope seeks to aid individuals to live longer and healthier lives by the slowing down and perhaps even the reversing of the process accepted as aging. He has been known to donate considerable amounts of money to support research what he feels will one day be transformative in the way that the healthcare industry approaches the subject of aging and illnesses that are related to aging.
A major beneficiary of the support provided by Jason Hope is the SENS Foundation. Hope made his initial donation to the foundation in 2010 in the amount of $500,000 and has supported the organization since that time.
The SENS Foundation is a research organization that is bullish on the prospects of using biotechnology to develop more modern approaches to the prevention and treatment of human illness and disease. Through their research, the foundation observes living organisms and organic specimens in order to develop products that have life-improving properties.
Mike Kope, the chief executive officer of the SENS Foundation, credited the support of Jason Hope with providing the Foundation with the ability to act faster in their fight to eradicate age-related illnesses. Kope also expresses his desire to one day see the use of biotechnology to positively affect the lives of individuals across the globe. He says donations like the one given by Hope can one day make this dream a reality.
