A Special Issue of the European Journal of Neuroscience has been put together by NECTAR (Network for European CNS Transplantation & Restoration) in collaboration with The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) in memory of late President and Co-founder Tom Isaacs who sadly passed away suddenly last year.

Tom was a whirlwind of wit and energy who used his young onset Parkinson’s to try and change our thinking and approach to this condition, and who succeeded in changing the landscape on how we treat this condition, forever and for the better.

CPT is delighted to see some superb extracts of research articles being published online as part of the lead up to this EJN Special Edition which will be published in full in late December early January.

We will be publishing some articles 'free to read' in full, and this article by Tom's wife Lyndsey Isaacs and neurologist Prof. Roger Barker heralds the collaboration.
