The SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) Research Foundation hosts an annual Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference. In July 2014, the organization had such a meeting in Santa Clara. Aubrey de Grey, the chief science officer and co-founder of SENS Research Foundation, states that the overall agenda of the conference is to put up a foundation on the rejuvenation biotechnology industry hence aid in accelerating drug development. This is to be done, primarily, using the broad-based collaboration of repair-damage expertise. These annual conferences serve as a platform for key players and experts on topics such as building a rejuvenation biotechnology industry, the causes of aging and related diseases, cellular and molecular damage, and advancing regenerative therapies in Parkinson’s disease and cancer.
As such, the panelists are expected to discuss the preventive and combinatorial strategies to help in pushing the agenda of SENS. SENS is a non-profit organization with the intentions of raising support for private scientists, researchers, and individuals through prominent philanthropists. Jason Hope has been one of the biggest contributors in this line of work. He is an entrepreneur from Arizona. In 2010 only, he had donated $500,000 to the organization, which enabled it to equip and build the Cambridge SENS laboratory. The money also went towards implementing a brand-new research program that focuses on advancing glycation end products originating from human tissues. Jason has previously expressed his passion and desire to support SENS and its objectives. He considers the foundations of SENS as the key to unlocking anti-aging inventions that would reduce the capability of disease to break down the human body faster.
In return, he expects that the body would age much slower. He gave the example of lung and heart disease which tremendously affect the function of the body. In his opinion, traditional medicine practices look to treat these diseases once they are reported instead of stopping them from ever happening. Jason Hope is a renowned philanthropist, investor, futurist and a successful entrepreneur. He was born and raised in Tempe Arizona. Later in his life, he joined Arizona State University where he studied Finance before pursuing an MBA at his former college. Since he completed his studies, Jason has become a successful entrepreneur and gained an international reputation. He also a sought-after advisor in the business world. Jason lives in Scottsdale, Arizona which enables him to oversee most of his businesses and projects. As part of his free time, Jason spends most of it in philanthropic causes as his drive for innovative technologies and scientific research creates a modern school of thought in his circle of influence.
