Jason Hope continues giving big sums to anti-aging research

Jason Hope. one of the most important entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona, has recently announced that he will be donating more than half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation, one of the most cutting-edge research institutions in the medical profession today. Hope has long been intensely interested in the prospect of reducing the effects of aging and, hopefully, allowing people to eventually live far longer than is currently possible.

Ever since Hope was a young man, he was immersed in the medical literature, seeking to understand the root causes of some of the worst diseases and how to reduce or postpone indefinitely the aging process. As a result of his studies, Hope quickly came to the realization that many of the worst diseases in America are primarily a consequence of the aging process itself. The inside the Hope had was that if the aging process itself could be understood of the molecular level, and maybe possible to stave off or definitely postpone of the worst effects of aging.

It turned out that this philosophy was remarkably close to that of another important figure in the anti-aging research field. Aubrey de Grey, the founder of the SENS Foundation, which stands for strategies for engineered negligible senescence, has always been convinced that finding the molecular causes of the aging process would be one of the best means of effectively combating most of them more serious diseases that afflict the American public health. One of these diseases is atherosclerosis, a disease state that arises when too many lipids flow through the bloodstream, attaching themselves to the wall of the blood vessels and excluding the flow of blood.

Atherosclerosis kills hundreds of thousands of people each year in the United States alone, making it one of the deadliest diseases known to science. It is for this reason that the SENS Foundation has long focused on studying atherosclerosis in particular and inflammatory processes that lead to the formation of this deadly condition generally.

Hope’s large donation will primarily go to the study of atherosclerosis, allowing the SENS Foundation to fund a team of full-time researchers for as much as a year. The SENS Foundation has stated that this donation will represent significant infusion of capital, allowing the institution to make far more progress than it would otherwise have been able to, had Hope not stepped up and magnanimously donated his hard-earned money.
