Earning a reputation as a futurist, Jason Hope has a huge interest in shaping the future of technology. His aim is to make predictions of where technology will go using his knowledge of internet technology and science. To him, IOT (internet of things) represents one of the biggest technological innovations for modern society. A growing number of devices are internet-connected, so IOT is here to stay and will play a huge role in how the future is shaped by technology. While he is interested in IOT, much of his interest is in the field of Anti-Aging research.
He is a part of the SENS foundation, and one of his passions is for making anti-aging research work. The SENS foundation hosts a rejuvenation biotechnology conference yearly, which is an opportunity for guests to interact with the founder Dr. Aubrey DeGrey. In 2010, Jason Hope made a huge contribution to the anti-aging research foundation of $500,000. The SENS laboratory was used to create a new research program in order to fight human aging with an aim to find cures to degenerative disease.
The SENS Foundation is developing a class of drugs aimed at treating age-related illnesses called AGE-breakers. The aim with these treatments is for them to be used to break down glycation end products (AGEs). These end products are what build up and cause the body to lose it’s ability to function with age. These types of treatments also show promise for treating patients whom have been affected by neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
