The process of aging has long been viewed as something that is entirely unavoidable. Jason hope is looking to make a difference in the way that the world views aging. He believes that within our lifetimes it may be possible for individuals to halt and even reverse the aging process. However, this will not be possible without growing our understanding of the process of aging.
Jason hope is an entrepreneur who is a native of the state of Arizona. He continues to live there today he runs his business. He is also an avid futurist who supports the development of new technologies through his entrepreneurial endeavors. In particular, Jason hope is a strong proponent of biotechnology and the potential that it represents in changing our understanding of the aging process.
He recently donated $500,000 to a research foundation that is devoted to enhancing our understanding of the process of aging. The organization used this money in order to build a new laboratory at the University of Cambridge. At this new laboratory, the organization began to do research looking at metabolic waste products known as advanced glycation end products. Over the course of a human’s lifetime, advanced glycation end products build up within their tissues. This buildup of advanced glycation end products will eventually lead to the hardening of our body’s tissues and is a contributing factor in a number of ailments.
Jason hope stated that this new research was able to identify the most common metabolic waste products that build up in human tissues and has even begun to develop potential treatment protocols that can help to eliminate their presence from our bodies. The research that is being done at these laboratories is very different from the typical research that is done by the traditional medical community. In the traditional medical community, it is common to only look for treatments that target symptoms rather than the underlying causes of the symptoms.
If these substances are able to be eliminated from the human body, it will be possible to significantly increase the lifespans of individuals who have been affected by these metabolic waste products.
In addition to funding for research Jason hope also helps to fund efforts to influence the way that aging is perceived around the world. He believes that if you can get people to look at the process of aging differently than it will be possible to attract a greater interest in its treatment.
