Tom Isaacs

A new award has been set up in memory of Tom Isaacs, the internationally acclaimed Parkinson’s campaigner who died in May.

The annual award by the Van Andel Research Institute and The Cure Parkinson’s Trust will be presented at the Rallying to the Challenge meeting in Michigan, US, later this month.

The accolade has been created in recognition of Tom Isaacs’ long-term vision that working with people living with Parkinson’s is essential in the quest for a cure.

The award will be given to the researcher whose work has had the greatest impact on the lives of people with Parkinson’s that year.

Hundreds of people attended an event held in London, UK, this week held by The Cure Parkinson’s Trust to celebrate the life of Tom Isaacs. The charity’s chief operating officer Helen Matthews thanked Tom for “15 years of inspiration, adventure and fun”.
