In 2010 prominent Arizona philanthropist and businessman Jason hope donated have $1 million in research funding in order to help SENS research foundation establish a new laboratory at Cambridge. This was done in order to support the foundation’s age breaker program. This program is developing treatments that are capable of breaking down glycation end products which is a class of metabolic waste products that over time accumulate in the human tissues and cause progressive loss of elasticity in skin and blood vessels.Overall the amount of research being done on the prevention of advanced glycation end products is significantly lower than the therapeutic potential merits of these treatment protocols. Even with the amount of research that has been done over the past several decades very little has transferred over to proper treatment systems in humans as the advanced glycation end products that are found in laboratory animals are different than those found in humans.
As modern research continues to inform scientists on the differences found in humans compared to laboratory animals, it is now well known that the vast majority of all advanced glycation end products consist of one type which is known as glucosepane. By removing this molecule, the foundation is able to develop new regenerative medical treatment protocols.Jason hope has stated that philanthropy has become one of the most significant focuses in his life today. He has chosen to support this foundation because they focus on the prevention of age-related diseases rather than merely the treatment of age-related decline. This is an entirely different approach than what has been taken by traditional medicine over the past several decades.
Jason hope has an eye for the future and has asked individuals if they can believe in a world where age-related decline no longer exists. He believes that this is possible and while it may seem like a utopian dream he hopes to support research in order to make this a reality. By developing new regenerative medicine techniques, the repair of damage to tissue and cells within the human body is possible .Antiaging technologies are not the only area that hope has targeted in his philanthropic endeavors. He has also invested a significant amount of money and the development of new technologies for the hospitality industry. By keeping devices interconnected through the Internet of things he hopes to help create new seamless ways to deliver comfort to consumers at hotels throughout the world.
