When it comes to aging graciously, people in biblical times had it better than modern man. The first man, Adam, as the good old book says, lived up to nearly 1,000 years old before he met the grim ripper. And then things came tumbling down. In the past centuries, the average age of humans before they close their life chapters was around 50 plus years old. Coming down to our time, statistics indicate that we are improving. Now, they say it is about 70 or so. If Jason hope gets his way, this generation could still prolong their stay here on earth longer than 70 years old – with better qualities of life.Who is Jason Hope? Hope is an investor, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and futurist. We should be interested in his work as a philanthropist and futurist. He is born and raised in Tempe, Arizona.
Hope earned his degree in finance from the Arizona State University. He took graduate studies later and got his MBA degree at the same university, particularly at W.P. Carey School. After college, he applied what he learned in school and gained recognition in the business community. Today, he is a sought-after business pundit whose advice and opinion is valued by his peers and students.Hope is the kind of businessman that desires to put his money into charitable projects. After securing his position in the business community, Hope started venturing in philanthropy work. Currently, he is one of the major donors of SENS Research Foundation.
This charitable institution is involved in “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence” (SENS) research. In layman’s terms, this non-profit organization’s work is to develop an industry of biotechnology rejuvenation that can develop anti-aging drugs through the collaboration of a broad-spectrum of damage-repair experts.Hope has donated around $500,000 to this foundation in 2010, making him one of its largest contributors. With this kind of money, SENS was able to buy the facilities and equipment necessary to build its laboratory in Cambridge where it could conduct its researches. The foundation’s approach to anti-aging is different from that of traditional medical science. Their primary goal is to find cures for illnesses that break down the human body that in turn cause humans to age faster. For instance, heart, lung and Alzheimer’s disease adversely affect all bodily functions and mainstream medicine treats them after they are diagnosed. The goal of SENS is to find ways to stop these illnesses before they happen.
