The SENS Research Foundation is a company that is in the rejuvenation biotechnologies industry. They are tackling age-related diseases but not in the same way that regular biotechnology companies do. Regular biotechnology companies seek to find cures for age-related diseases. The SENS Research Foundation seeks to prevent them from occurring to begin with. They also engage in age extension research. The ultimate goal is for people around the world to live longer, healthier lives.
Technology entrepreneur Jason Hope is a firm believer in the cause that Sens Research Foundation believes in. Becuase of this, he pledged $500,000 to them a few years ago. This money will be used for this California based nonprofit construction of a new lab in Cambridge. The money will also be used to start a new research program looking into advanced glycation end products and how they affect human tissue.
When talking about anti-aging efforts, Jason Hope said that he was a firm believer in the top executive at the SENS Research Foundation, Dr. Aubrey de Grey. He had been interested in her work for a number of years and wanted to do his part to help their mission. He said that there are a lot of age-related diseases that if avoided would help huge numbers of people. He listed off a number such as cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and atherosclerosis. He thinks this area of research will completely revolutionize modern medicine.
At Arizona State University, Jason Hope earned both his undergraduate degree in finance and his MBA. Once he had his MBA he thought the logical course would be to start his own business because, as he says, what’s the point in getting an MBA otherwise. He started a company in mobile technology when it was still in its infancy. He has since spent his time investing in new startups in the tech industry that he sees as having huge promise.
Jason Hope is also a futurist and a published author. His focus of the last few years has been on the emerging Internet of Things which he believes will be the biggest tech revolution that the world has yet experienced. He has written many articles, and a book that’s available on Amazon, talking about IoT and how people and businesses need to adapt to it. He says that any business that doesn’t start incorporating IoT into their business model is destined for failure.
