Tom Isaacs: a patient advocate who inspired the Parkinson’s worldwide community

  • Posted by

    Parkinson’s advocates are mourning the loss of a leader. Tom Isaacs co-founded the Cure Parkinson’s Trust in 2005 and has been a tireless campaigner in the UK and on the international stage. We were deeply saddened to hear of his untimely death on 31 May at the age of 49.

    Tom was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease when he was just 26 years old. He became an energetic advocate for people with Parkinson’s through the Cure Parkinson’s Trust and as a board member of the European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA).

    Like many others, we were inspired by Tom and all that he achieved in his support for ground-breaking science and his compassion for fellow patients.

    On behalf of all at UCB, I would like to extend our condolences to his family and friends.
