“Having been very moved by the documentary ‘The Parkinson’s Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure’, I was lucky enough to meet Lyndsey Isaacs whose passion for finding a cure for Parkinson’s is infective. When the opportunity arose to become a member of the Cure Parkinson’s Board of Trustees, I jumped at it in the hope that my experience across academia and the pharmaceutical industry could be put to good use.” – Linda Feighery
