Jason Hope is a futurist, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a believer in hope. Regarding the latter, the activist investor is a true believer in not only health but in turning back the ravages of time. Activist investor and philanthropist Jason often puts his money where his mouth is.
And, regarding turning back father time by providing financial backing for the SENS ORGANIZATION, (the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence.) Jason Hope is one of their main investors. He says that SENS helps combat disease and old age in a different way. Rather than combatting a particular disease and halting its progression, SENS seeks to find the underlying DNA if you will, to prevent the disease from occurring in the first place. Perhaps the biggest opportunity in our lifetime, according to Hope, is in Stem cell research.
As a futurist, Jason Hope recognizes that just as in the past people envisioned flying cars everywhere. This, because there has been a tendency regarding Stem cell research to promise a lot and deliver just a little. However, he notes that right now, SENS and other medical organizations are seeing remarkable results with regard to disease prevention.
In particular at the moment, from the ravages of Parkinson’s Disease. According to the active philanthropist Jason Hope, another area where remarkable progress is being made is in the macular degeneration of human retinas.
As a futurist, the business leader recognizes that Stem Cell research is just at the beginning stages of productivity and application, but perhaps in 30 or so years, there will be literally thousands of applications for its use, as Jason Hope finally states. That will mean figuring out many other challenges in the future as a result of conquering disease and perhaps extending the average life experience another 25 or more years for people around the world, but that seems to be the path of destiny we are heading toward.
