In 2009 Dr. Aubrey de Grey started Strategies for engineered Negligible Senescence (SNES), an organization whose sole purpose is to prevent physical and cognitive decline that occurs as people age. The company researches things such as cell atrophy and loss, death-resistant cells, mitochondrial mutations and more. Well-known Arizona-based entrepreneur and philanthropist, Jason Hope, has pledged $500,000 to SNES in hopes that his donation can help to advance medicine and unlock the secrets of the anti-aging processes.
After receiving an MBA from Arizona State University, Jason Hope began his whirlwind success story by starting a premium text messaging service. He knew that there was room for growth in mobile technology and used that to branch out into other investments. Technology, however, has been his bread and butter and is something that he has always felt strongly about. He believes that when you focus on advancing technology you have a much better chance to improve society, give a better life to those who are currently struggling with life-long illnesses and to catch diseases before they cause a large amount of damage.
Dr. de Grey has stated publicly that the funds that donated by Jason Hope is mainly going to be put towards studying arteriosclerosis, also known as a hardening of the arteries. This occurs mainly because of hypertension, or increased blood pressure, and can exacerbate a number of other health conditions. By studying this condition, and learning how to treat it, Dr. de Grey is excited at the possibility of truly making changes in the medical world.
The donation doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows Jason Hope as he is well-known in the Phoenix area for his philanthropist leanings. Jason is a strong supporter of educational programs and has volunteered and donated to such organizations as: T Gen Foundation, the Tony Hawk Foundation, The Andre Agassi Foundation, Teach for America Phoenix and many more charities that are close to his heart.
