The fountain of youth may be an obvious myth, but the new research that is being conducted by the SENS Research Foundation regarding aging clearly is not. The organization is devoted to finding new information and potential cures for certain diseases that develop naturally as people grow older. Much of the work the group is now doing was first performed by the Methuselah Foundation beginning in 2003. Anti-aging research is the primary focus of the SENS group, technically known as Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence, and have recently been the recipient of a $500,000 donation from Arizona businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Jason Hope.

Jason Hope has been very successful in his business ventures since graduating from the University of Arizona. Even though he has developed business interests across the nation, he has stayed true to his Arizona roots, currently living and operating in his hometown of Scottsdale. Hope is well-known among the research industry as a top promoter and philanthropist in new areas of technology that allow scientists to utilize concepts associated with rethinking certain diseases such as Parkinson’s and diabetes. The SENS Organization is just one such researcher taking a strategic approach in hopes of developing a completely new bio-tech industry that addresses molecular changes in the body that can be stopped or impeded for a significant period.
This new approach is exactly the type of science that drives Jason Hope as a philanthropist. His other organization contributions have included significant grants to The Tony Hawk Foundation, the Andre Agassi Foundation, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of the western state chapters. Other non-profit organizations Hope has donated to include:
• The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation
• True Colors Fund
• Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix
• The International Foundation for Education and Self Help
• T Gen Foundation
• Teachers of America Phoenix
• Family Health International
In addition to these particular charitable organizations, Jason Hope has also been a significant contributor to the Arizona Science Center. He is actually a member of the Director’s Circle of this local state operation. Jason’s most serious focus on entrepreneurship currently is the primary impact the internet of things will have in the future, along with how future businesses will implement this technology as more and more devices are built. These future technological capabilities will become part of the consummate interconnection of devices designed to assist future generations in living more productive lives.
