The yearly Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference that took place in Santa Clara during 2014 covered emerging regenerative medicine solutions for the diseases of aging. The Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, Aubrey de Grey, focused on covering the topic of drugs that are being engineered to turn back the clock in people’s lives. During the event many experts attended and covered a slew of topics centered around aging, cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, and cellular and molecular damage. These are topics that always concern the SENS foundation, which is a non-profit that was created through the donations of philanthropists and other interested parties.
Jason Hope, a successful entrepreneur that calls Arizona his home, has been one of the organization’s largest supporters. In fact, it was Mr. Hope that donated $500,000 to the SENS foundation in 2010. His donation allowed SENS to develop a cutting edge research program as well as to purchase equipment and a home for the Cambridge SENS laboratory.
