Dr Jonathan Stevens

This competition is dedicated to the memory one of our research supporters, Dr Jonathan Stevens, who passed away suddenly at the age of 34 in December 2013. He lived with Parkinson's for several years, and died of unrelated health complications.

Jonathan shared his passion for both science and photography through his online blogs and inspired people with Parkinson’s, researchers and Parkinson’s UK with his ability to elegantly explain complex scientific concepts.
