We are delighted to welcome our new VP, Medical, Dr Lisa Parker!
With nearly 20 years experience in medical communications, Lisa has joined the emotive Leadership Team to provide senior strategic direction and oversee the medical team to ensure we continue to deliver scientific excellence.
Born and raised in Detroit, Lisa gained a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, before moving on to work for US-based medical communications agencies. She moved to the UK four years ago and has since worked in senior medical strategy roles at Chameleon Communications and Cogora.
She has a wealth of experience working in many therapy areas including oncology, haematology, autoimmune and rare disorders and a strong background in strategic planning and execution, as well as significant novel therapies launch experience.
Lisa’s breadth of expertise working for global, regional and US brands is extremely valuable for emotive’s London office as well as the new Boston office which opened earlier this year.
emotive’s MD Lizzie Nayman says “It’s a pleasure to have Lisa onboard! Lisa has a great passion for our vision, and her ability to create compelling scientific narratives and give strategic communications guidance at all stages of the life cycle will allow her to add great value to our clients. Her therapy area expertise in oncology, haematology and rare diseases, coupled with her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology, means she will also be a great asset to our Advanced Therapies Business Unit. From her experience working on global, regional and US brands she’s the perfect person to oversee both our medical teams in the UK and our growing office in the US.”
Lisa added “I am really excited to be joining such a dynamic and growing team. It is great to be part of a group of intelligent and creative people who are all working together to help clients launch innovative therapies to improve patients’ lives.”
