Jason Hope is a business consultant and a humanitarian. He gives generously to several non profits, which subsequently can do ground breaking research, for example SENS. Hope gave SENS $500,000. SENS funds and works with Yale, Harvard, Cambridge, and the University of Arizona on research into medicine called AGE breakers. These compounds break up a bodily substance known as glucation-end products which cause age-related processes such as rigidity of skin and veins. This process, in turn, causes high blood pressure and heart and lung disease. Jason Hope has spent his time and money on this research, spreading the word through public speaking on just how exciting and important this work is, thus, attracting attention and funds. And there has been progress. SENS has successfully treated small animals with a medication that stopped the glucation-end products’ effects. And it has been able to open a laboratory in the UK, in 2011, thanks to Jason Hope’s philanthropy that is furthering the work on glucation.
Hope has spoken to the need for prevention of disease, such as Alzheimer’s, and heart and lung disease which can cause premature aging. He has said prevention is the key, which is what makes this research so dramatically different from conventional medicine. Conventional medicine seeks to manage age-related illnesses, but by then the damage is done. Jason Hope is raising public awareness that real change is only possible through prevention.He is working with and funding several organization in his area because in this way, he can take a hands on approach to making the world a better place.
