Over the last 20 years, Jason Hope has emerged as one of the most talented entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona’s history. After founding a series of highly successful startups, including the first premium mobile content streaming provision service, Hope went on to found dozens of successful tech companies. These have included b2b software applications, search engine optimization services and a number of web design companies. Today, Hope is widely regarded as one of the most important entrepreneurs in history of Arizona.
But recently, Hope has taken a hiatus from his busy schedule, focusing instead on writing and blogging on the internet regarding coming technologies and the ways in which modern science can shape both daily lives and the ways that medicine can improve people’s quality of life and their lifespan. One of the areas in which Hope has always had an intense interest has been the area of the extension of natural human lifespan. Hope has long followed the medical journals, such as the Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine, to try to determine what the best way for researchers to concentrate on extending the average lifespan may be.
One of the areas that have shown the most promise, according to Hope, has been the area of molecular research into the various disease processes that make up the majority of geriatric illnesses. Hope has long hypothesized that if these diseases can be understood at a more nuanced level that it may be possible to one day drastically reduce or even completely eliminate most of the diseases and degradations associated with the aging process.
This formed of the impetus behind Hope’s gigantic donation to the SENS Foundation, one of the leading research organizations in the nation, which specializes in the aging process and molecular medicine. Hope recently donated half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation, in order to further their ability to research the molecular origins of atherosclerosis, one of the most deadly medical conditions in existence today. Atherosclerosis is responsible for up to half of all adult deaths in United States, being the responsible factor in almost all cases of heart attack, stroke and even some more obscure diseases, such as mesenteric is chemia and aortic dissection.
Hope believes that through understanding the molecular causes of atherosclerosis, it will one day be possible for geriatricians to understand, on a incredibly granular level, the vast majority of diseases that lead to the body’s slow decline during people’s senior years. Hope believes that this may someday lead to a genuine Fountain of Youth, being able to slowly quell the inevitable charge of senescence that ultimately culminates in everyone’s death.
It is through initiatives like these that Hope is making real contributions to the state of modern medicine.
