Jason Hope’s Anti-Aging Research Donations

In 2010, Jason Hope donated 500,000 dollars to the SENS Research Foundation. Using this donation, the foundation was able to create the Cambridge SENS Laboratory and use what was remaining of the money to start new research which aimed to be able to break down advanced glycation end products in human tissue. This new lab focuses on studying ways to slow down and even prevent degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s that make the body age faster. After his donation, Jason Hope also discussed finding cures for lung disease, another disease that begins to harm the whole body, not just the lungs or brain. Besides being a benefactor to the SENS Laboratory he is also an investor, an entrepreneur and a philanthropist. Mr. Hope was born in Tempe, Arizona and then went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in finance from Arizona State University. Furthering his education, he then attended the W.P. Carey School of Business and earned his MBA. As well as his funding of the SENS research project, he likes to donate to any projects that are innovative or take a new or different approach. Jason Hope offers grants to students and young entrepreneurs as well. His hope is that he can encourage younger generations to use their imagination and creativity to help the world of science in particular.  Scottsdale Philanthropist Jason Hope Helps Pioneering Nonprofit Fight Aging.
