Jason Hope is supporting anti-aging research that is being conducted by a foundation known as SENS Research Foundation under the leadership of scientist Aubrey de Grey. Hope has cooperated with the organization for the past one decade by supporting it financially and promoting their work in different forums. SENS Research Foundation develops regenerative medicine that cures the damage caused by aging and age-related diseases.
Every year, SENS hosts the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference which brings together experts who are interested in finding solutions to old-age diseases. The main focus of the conference is to discuss how an anti-aging drug can be developed. Such a drug will protect the body from the damage done by aging. The conference serves as a platform where experts share information and learn from one another.
Some of the old age diseases that could be eliminated if the research work is successful are Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes among others. An anti-aging drug will reverse molecular and cellular damage caused by aging. Jason Hope who is a self-declared “futurist” believes that an anti-aging drug could solve the problem s of the entire medical sector.

Hope has demonstrated that he is committed to the anti-aging research by contributing $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation. The donation which was given when the organization was starting operations helped in building laboratories and starting research.
The philanthropist says that his huge contribution was influenced by the potential effect that an anti-aging drug could have. The research that SENS Foundation is carrying out is not about the treatment of the symptoms of old age diseases; it is about the treatment of the root cause of the aging.
If the anti-aging drug is discovered, it will change the approach that has been used before in treating human diseases, more so the old age diseases. It will be a revolutionary idea that will affect the entire healthcare industry.
