Back in 2010, Jason Hope made one of the biggest donations of his career to fund the research at the SENS Foundation. Jason’s donation was a sum of five hundred thousand dollars and it helped the organization build a dedicated SENS Laboratory. They were also able to start up a research program that is still in effect today.
The primary reason Jason Hope gave them such a big donation is they are at the forefront of anti-aging research and they show a lot of potential moving forward. There are a variety of degenerative diseases out there that affect people, such as Alzheimer’s, lung disease, and Parkinson’s.

Thanks to their research, SENS was able to discover that AGEs are one of the biggest factors in these degenerative diseases. AGE stands for advanced glycation end, which is basically just metabolic waste. This waste product builds up within the body and starts to cause harm over time. This is essentially what causes individuals to get develop arthritis as they get older. Although there are various organizations out there dedicated to developing treatments, there is not nearly enough research going on due to lack of funds, which is why Jason Hope has made such a big commitment to the field of anti-aging research.
Research into animals that develop these very same diseases was ongoing for a while, thanks to better funding, it was eventually found that animals have varying types of AGEs, while humans have a single type only. Discoveries like these are the foundation of what will eventually be treatments or cures for degenerative diseases. Anti-aging could go on to save billions of dollars every year across the world for people that spend money to cope with these illnesses.
