Jason Hope is one of the biggest contributors of the SENS Foundation, a non-profit organization that develops and promotes rejuvenation biotechnologies that focus on age-related diseases. SENS (Strategies of Engineered Negligible Senescence) Foundation has a network of researchers, scientists and prominent philanthropists. Jason Hope has been actively involved in enhancing the operations of the foundation, including donating towards its research prospects severally. For instance, Mr. Hope donated $500,000 to the SENS Foundation in 2010 to help in advancing the rejuvenation solutions. His overwhelming contribution helped SENS to develop the Cambridge SENS lab. The organization used portion of the funds to launch a research program focusing on the breakdown of advanced glycation end products in human tissue.
While commenting on his support towards SENS, Hope said that foundations like SENS employ a unique biotechnical approach to fighting anti-aging diseases. Age-related diseases include diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Atherosclerosis and heart and lung diseases. Traditional treatment aims to treat these conditions after they have been diagnosed in an individual. However, SENS aims to prevent these chronic conditions from occurring. The SENS Research Foundation’s annual Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference is scheduled from August 23 to 23. The event will take place at the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency Hotel and will feature the theme, “Emerging Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Diseases of Aging.”
According to Aubrey de Grey, SENS Foundation’s co-founder and chief science officer, their goal is to build an effective rejuvenation biotechnology industry. They seek to achieve this objective by enhancing the development of drugs through intensive collaboration with damage-repair professionalism. The Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference will feature a panel of industry experts who will share insights on various topics. The topics will include molecular and cellular damage as the cause of the aging diseases, building a rejuvenation biotechnology industry and advancing regenerative therapies in cancer and Parkinson’s disease. The event will also include a discussion of combinatorial and preventive strategies of age-related diseases.
