Jason Hope is a futurist, investor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who has been closely following the progress of the anti-aging industry for years. More specifically, he has been keeping an eye on the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey; the founder and chief science officer of the SENS Research Foundation. SENS works to conduct research and to discover more about regenerative medicine, which can be used to treat age-related diseases.
What interests Jason Hope, is the fact that SENS is working to treat age-related disease before it ever takes place. This is a radical new approach, and Hope believes so much in the work of the foundation that he decided to donate $500,000 to help it with it along. His donation was announced at the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference, which takes place on a yearly basis. The conference brings together the top minds in the field, which allows them to share what they know in order to further the knowledge base of regenerative medicine.

The donation from Jason Hope went towards helping the SENS Foundation to build its “Cambridge SENS Laboratory.” The foundation was also able to begin a research program because of his donation. Hope admitted in an interview that he was very glad to be able to a part of the foundation’s work and feels that the future is much brighter because of the possibilities that Dr. de Grey’s work creates. At the conference, Jason Hope spoke a bit about regenerative medicine can help to treat Alzheimer’s disease and lung and heart disease and is excited about the possibility of stopping these before they ever occur in a person.
