Lee Parker is an English-qualified solicitor and privacy professional, focussed on the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. He is Director EU+ Privacy at Biogen, based in the canton of Zug in Switzerland. He is also Biogen’s EU Data Protection Officer. He is a member of the data protection working groups of science industries and EFPIA. He is also a member of the EMA's Technical Anonymisation Group, tasked with developing best practices in data anonymisation in the context of clinical data publication. Lee originally fell into data protection mainly by accident, when no one else in his company wanted to do it, but feels it is the best professional “decision” he never made.
