Jason Hopes Donates To Help Fight Age-Related Illness

When the majority of people think about the concept of anti-aging, they tend to think about skin care and aesthetic procedures that can give the appearance of being years younger. While looking good is important, what about feeling good and having better overall health? This is the goal of the SENS Research Foundation that recently received a considerable $500,000 donation from entrepreneur Jason Hope.

Each year, the SENS Research Foundation holds their Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference. The contributions given by the experts in attendance of this conference could help develop new medications that could reverse or prevent some of the problems that come with aging. This goal isn’t to allow for everlasting life and instead is to make it so the years that people do have are spent with a higher quality of life. Some of the diseases that are being targeted by SENS are Parkinson’s disease, molecular damage, cellular damage, and Alzheimer’s Disease. These efforts are all extremely important to Jason Hope.

With the money that Jason Hope donated to the SENS Research Foundation, the organization was able to pay for a part of the Cambridge SENS Laboratory. Some of the money that SENS received in donations is also being used to create a research program. When a type of metabolic waste known as AGE builds up in the body, it can cause harm and lead to the human body degenerating over time. SENS has a program known as AGE-breaker that is focused on medications that can help to break down this metabolic waste so it can’t cause more damage. Some of the health problems associated with the buildup of age are elasticity in the blood vessels and skin, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s, and arthritis among several others.

Illnesses like these are known as age-related diseases as they usually develop when the body starts to break down later in life. While these diseases have become quite common especially as the population gets older, Jason doesn’t believe that there is nearly enough research going into their treatment or development. Through his generous donation, the philanthropist is hoping that others will be inspired to donate to the worthy cause.

William Saito on Russia

While the United States has been at the forefront of many technical innovations with powerful companies such as Microsoft, Apple, and Google, they aren’t the only leader in this constantly evolving business space. William Saito is a Japenese-American businessman who grew up just a few hours from Silicon Valley – America’s tech capital. Having already landed his first computer programming internship when he was 10, William Saito practically grew up in the cybersecurity field developing fingerprint authentication software through a collaboration with Sony and his own software company, I/O Software. He has also done other complicated tasks, such as translating English software to Japanese.

 

You don’t often hear about Russia when reading about technological advances. However, this could soon change thanks to the work of William Saito and other American tech leaders. He is meeting with Russia leaders as a tech consultant. In order for Russia to be at the new forefront of technological innovation, there are many changes that must take place. Russia used to be very well known for the Kaspersky security software, but after a Department of Homeland Security report in 2017, American sales of Kaspersky has plummeted.

William Saito knows what must take place in order for Russia to become technologically competitive. A big issue with Russia’s innovation problems comes down to how innovators are treated. With lack of support and investment from Russia, it is difficult for new ventures to even get started. Russia must find ways to fund startups, as tech companies can cost quite a bit of money to get started. They must also be willing to work with American innovators on this process. Mr. Saito has had many successful endeavors in Silicon Valley and knows what it takes for a tech company to become successful. Though his consulting, as well as advisors from many large Silicon Valley companies, Russia could soon be the leader in tech innovation.
