Jason Hope: Arizona Futurist Supports Research Causes
Antiaging research has come a long ways over the last several decades. However, traditional medicine continues to merely view aging as a natural occurrence and focuses on the treatment of symptoms rather than the prevention of diseases. This is changing as new organizations around the world are beginning to initiate innovative research that is dedicated towards finding the causes and preventing these diseases from ever occurring in the first place. One such organization, the SENS foundation, has benefited greatly from the philanthropy of Jason hope a prominent Arizona entrepreneur and businessman. Jason hope donated half $1 million to the organization eight years ago in 2010. With this significant donation, the foundation was able to build a new laboratory in Cambridge that is devoted towards researching new ways to treat age-related diseases through the use of regenerative medicine.
Already, the organization has developed a way to break down glycation end products. This is a significant step forward in the world of age-related disease treatment. The organization’s name is an acronym for scientifically engineered negligible senescence. This may sound complicated, but it is really a statement about the foundation’s research goals. Senescence is the age-related decline in organisms physical capabilities. There are organisms in the world such as the lobster which does not display any age-related decline in their physical abilities. This is known as negligible senescence. Humans are not like this. Over time humans are known to age, and their bodies break down causing an increase in weakness and frailty of the human organism. By utilizing innovative biotechnology solutions, the company hopes to target the cellular and molecular breakdown caused by aging and prevent this. This is known as engineered negligible senescence.
Jason Ho believes that aging can be stopped and as such has pledged to support to this organization in addition to a number of other scientific research initiatives. As a futurist Jason hope has dedicated himself towards investing in technologies that promise future applications across all industries. For example, the Internet of things which is the network which connects all interconnected devices is another area that he has displayed interest in. The hospitality industry is poised to take significant advantage of new technologies that have been enabled by the advent of the Internet of things. By keeping devices interconnected, consumers will be able to experience even more exceptional comfort delivered through more and more seamless means. In the next two years, over 20 billion devices will have been connected to the Internet of things, and it will only continue to grow.
