While the biotech industry keeps advancing, many people including the entrepreneur Jason Hope believes that there needs to be a new type of industry created to fight the illnesses that come with aging. As mammals including humans get older, their bodies start to break down due to many different factors. This breakdown can contribute to illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, and arthritis. While appearance is something that many people are concerned about when they are aging, in later years health is usually the main concern.
Instead of trying to just treat these illnesses when they occur, Jason Hope believes that there should be more focus on trying to prevent them from occurring in the first place. In 2010, he made a half a million dollar donation to the SENS Research Foundation which works to create change in healthcare through rejuvenation biotechnology. This donation was used to help open the Cambridge SENS Laboratory as well as starting up a new program to research rejuvenation medicine. He noted that while the breakdown of the human body can lead to illness, these illnesses can also lead to even more advanced premature aging.

Jason Hope is a futurist and an entrepreneur that has dedicated his life to advancing society and science. The research that SENS will be participating in with his donation involves researching regenerative therapies that will work to break down advanced glycation end products. AGE are metabolic waste products that the body produces and can damage the human body as they continue to build up over time. This can prevent the body from developing age-related illnesses that can affect the whole body and mind. He wants to see these illnesses to be diagnosed less while better treatments are developed to reverse the damage that they can cause.
One of the big problems that SENS has come across while researching rejuvenate medicine is that the animals being tested do not react the same way as humans. Their life spans are considerably shorter and therefore the aging process does not affect them in the same manner. The philanthropist hopes that the research that they do with his and other donations will help them achieve better results.

TMS and Depression
Despite the FDA approval in 2008 and the efficacy of TMS in treating medication-resistant depression, Ara Chackerian and his partners noted that there was a low uptake of the technology by various facilities across the country. Mr. Chackerian and his partners opted to build outpatient facilities for patients where they can affordably undergo treatment using TMS since most of them had been locked out limited insurance coverage. The company has built over seven facilities in Sacramento and San Francisco’s Bay Area. Ara Chackerian believes that the algorithms used in technologies such as digital assisted healthcare application and telemedicine have a massive potential of improving the quality of healthcare services delivery. He believes that these algorithms can be used to monitor the behavioral patterns of patients suffering from various conditions. Medical practitioners can then use such data to make critical decisions. Check out interview.net
