In Memoriam: Sanjeev V. Thomas

20 February, 2024

Prof Sanjeev V. Thomas sadly passed away on 4 February 2024. Prof Thomas was a recipient of the Ambassador of Epilepsy Award in 2019 for his leadership role in improving epilepsy care in India. He served in several ILAE working groups, such as the Lancet Commission, as well as the task forces for epilepsy treatment guidelines and women with epilepsy, the latter of which was his primary interest in epilepsy care.

Above all Prof Thomas was a wonderful family man, a skilled photographer, dedicated and inspiring teacher to his students, constant mentor to aspiring and young neurologists and epilepsy care specialists, devoted doctor to persons with epilepsy and neurological disorders particularly for disabled individuals with regard to their social and occupational rehabilitation, a sincere and patient hospital administrator. A humble and gentle soul whose smile and warm presence in any gathering will be sorely missed.
