Aubrey De Grey is a co-founder and chief science officer for SENS Research Foundation. A passionate advocate for rejuvenation technology Grey believes everyone’s contribution to anti-aging research improves the quality of life. SENS relies heavily on the backing of investors, scientists, and researches in its quest to stop the negative effects caused by age. The organization is at the forefront of budding industry, focusing on research to stop the process within the body that cause age. It is quite revolutionary. SENS host a conference every year to spread the word about rejuvenation biotechnology and foster interest. For many, anti-aging is the future, and they are willing to invest in that future. Jason Hope is certainly willing, in 2010 he gave SENS half-a-million dollars. The successful entrepreneur turned philanthropist remains a steadfast supporter. He also wears the hat of spokesmen, and represents SENS at many social occasions. De Grey lauded Hope for his generosity, which SENS used to fund new research to build a new lab. Hope, who is also an avid futurist, believes fervently that rejuvenation technology is the cure for aging altogether.
Many entrepreneurs are chasing scientific fountains of youth, investing money in organizations like SENS in an effort to extend life. Although many want to live forever, for most it is the desire to make the quality of life better for future generations. Aging leads to many medical conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. The ability to stop the process that deteriorate the body can ultimately prevent such conditions, or fight them off. Currently SENS is researching AGE-blocker technology, which attacks waste build-up in the body that causes humans to age. At present the treatment is predicted to reduce blood pressure and possibly even prevent osteoporosis, arthritis, and more serious diseases like cancer. For SENS it is fighting the disease at the source. It is also what first attracted Hope to the organization. They offered cure instead of just treatment. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
