The SENS Foundation has long been at the forefront of anti-aging research. Started by Aubrey de Grey, a long-time cellular biologist with an intense interest in the aging process, the SENS Foundation has been able to make serious inroads into understanding the aging process at a molecular level. It is hoped that at some point in the future, these findings may help create products that are able to help people indefinitely postpon the aging process, leading to a vastly higher life expectancy for all humans.
As one of the most prolific entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona, Jason Hope has gotten his fair share of attention. He was one of the first pioneers of the premium mobile content streaming business model, developing the business more than 10 years before Apple came out with the Apple Store and its own streaming model. Additionally, Hope has also been involved in the creation of novel businesses that have done everything from providing business to business analytics solutions to developing apps for business to customer use.
But now, the incredibly busy Hope has mostly stepped back from the day-to-day operational aspects of running his tech empire. He prefers now to spend the majority of his time writing and blogging on the coming revolution that will be brought about by the Internet of Things as well as the latest developments in biotech, including the development of anti-aging solutions that may soon allow people to vastly out live any of our ancestors.
It was for this reason that Hope decided to donate more than half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation. Hope has stated that the money will be used primarily to find a full-time team of atherosclerosis researchers. Although atherosclerosis ranks as one of the deadliest conditions in the United States today, causing the deaths of millions of people from its downstream effects of heart attack, stroke and other diseases related to venous insufficiency, Hope believes that the underlying cause of atherosclerosis can be teased out to such an extent that its lessons can be applied to a vast array of other conditions.
Based on his own reading of the medical literature, Hope has concluded that the inflammatory process that lies at the core of atherosclerotic plaque formation is also the same fundamental process that drives conditions ranging from glaucoma to rheumatoid arthritis.
