The science of aging is such a complicated and elusive process. It requires a lot of trial and error, and it demands a lot of sacrifice and risk for those who will study it.
One of the few brave and risk taking people in the medical industry today who want to study the complexities of aging is Jason Hope, a respected tech whiz, investor and capitalist that wants to find the secrets of eternal youth.
Jason Hope’s SENS Foundation
Jason Hope is one of the proponents and advocates of the SENS Foundation, which is involved in finding ways to use rejuvenation biotechnologies in finding out how to achieve the eternal youth. It is not the quest to live forever that Jason Hope wants.
The philanthropist in Jason Hope just wants to use the best of his skills and effort to create a better life not just for himself, for his family’s future, but also for the world.
He’s also willing to pay for the risks and challenges of such efforts, which makes him even more courageous. He understands that in the efforts of his SENS foundation to find the right answers to the problems he addresses, he may have to cut ties with some people.
This doesn’t mean that he’ll be alone in his quest. Since 2010, he has already made a lot of connections and money, about half-a-million from investors’ support in his projects, mainly the funding of his new laboratory in Cambridge.
It is the hope also of the organization that Jason Hope will start, to make sure that the anti-aging research that he proposes will have the best technological backing that it needs to reach its aims. For this, he’s being called one of the futurists in the United States, and this claim is something that he takes a lot of pride from.
Before we proceed, we should highlight first that SENS stands for Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence, which is a fantastic name in itself but has also been consistent in giving the people new ideas to answer the aging problems. The foundation believes that we can learn a lot from species and animals who have made use of their nature to delay symptoms of aging. Some of these species include tortoises and the ever amorphous hydras. These species, unlike others, don’t increase their chances of dying just by aging.
