There is a foundation that is leading in research of anti-aging diseases known as SENS Research Foundation. This organization is carrying out what could be the biggest invention in the history of medicine. An anti-aging drug that could stop or slow down the pace of aging in human beings is what the foundation aims at. The foundation is, however, a non-profit organization which depends on the goodwill of well-wishers and philanthropists to carry out its operations. SENS Foundation was founded in 2009 by a computer scientist cum a biological researcher Aubrey de Grey. He holds a Ph.D. in Biology. He is one of the passionate researchers in this field of anti-aging and has even dominated $10 million to the organization.
Aubrey de Grey has been working closely with other people in the various fields to create a solution to the aging problem. The big contention he has with aging is that it leads to numerous disease which does not occur at a younger age. Some diseases such as cancer, Parkison’s disease and Alzheimer’s are some of the diseases which affect the old people. To treat these diseases, the best medicine would be to look for the root cause which is the aging process. If the human body does not become weak due to aging, there is less likelihood that these diseases will develop. So, de Grey is searching for a drug that will solve the root cause and not just treat the diseases. An anti-aging drug will make sure that the body does not become weak due to aging.
The ongoing research is being supported by Arizona-based philanthropist and “futurist” Jason hope. Jason Hope sees this research as one of the best things that could occur in the history of man. By solving the cause of major human diseases, people will be able to lead healthy lives for many years. Although there is a claim that such a drug would increase the lifespan of the human being, Jason Hope and the SENS foundation have no intention to solve that. What they need is to extend the healthy lifespan of the people. One could be 90 years and still be very healthy.
Aubrey de Grey together with Jason Hope wants to see the current generation enjoy the benefits of such a drug. It is for this reason that they have invested heavily in this research. Jason Hope has contributed money which has gone to the building of laboratories as well a sponsoring the annual conference on anti-aging hoisted by the foundation.
