Jason Hope has always been passionate about medicine and the impact that it could have on humanity in the future. In fact, Hope has gone on record in numerous interviews regarding the fact that he doesn’t believe aging to be a permanent problem for humanity. In order for Hope’s thought to become a reality, he realized that there needs to be renewed focus on what our medical researchers are actually researching. This naturally led Hope to look at the work being done at the SENS Foundation. In fact, Hope become so infatuated with their anti-aging research that he ended up writing a donation for a full half of a million dollars in order to help their research.

The SENS Foundation is currently led by CEO Mike Kope and it was he who announced Jason Hope’s intense interest in their company as well as the massive donation that Hope so generously doled out. The donation was announced during the Breakthrough Philanthropy event which was hosted by Peter Thiel of the famous Thiel Foundation. Thiel was on hand to see the donation and he was summarily impressed by what he saw. Thiel would end up calling Hope’s donation, and corresponding passion, the entire highlight of the event.

What led Hope to the SENS Foundation specifically was the work that they had been doing on several important age-related diseases. Of these diseases, Hope’s donation will be serving to help analyze and search for a cure to arteriosclerosis. Dr. Aubrey de Grey, the CSO at the SENS Foundation, is the lead researcher on the property and one of Hope’s chief inspirations. Dr. de Grey was “delighted” about Hope’s donation and he believes that the funds will help to search for breakthroughs in his work that will hopefully impact the health of people around the world.
