Eli Lilly and Company


Your Partner in Drug Discovery and Development 

At Lilly, we take smart risks on bold science to achieve our mission of bringing life-changing medicines to patients.  We understand innovation can occur anywhere and are positioned to seek out and foster novel science where it happens around the globe.   

As a community of scientists, we take seriously our responsibility in stewarding your breakthrough science.  Wherever you are on your drug discovery path, Lilly has a proven legacy of successfully funding, developing, and accelerating innovation to serve patients.   

A Legacy of Unleashing Potential 

For more than 145 years, Lilly has been accessing innovation through strategic collaborations and partnerships.  In 1923, Lilly pioneered strategic collaboration by scaling the bold work of four University of Toronto research scientists by launching the world’s first commercial insulin.  This scale of pharmaceutical production had never been realized.  We are proud of our collaboration legacy and continue to drive to this same mission of bringing game-changing medicines to patients in need.

Positioned within our R&D organization, Lilly’s business development partnering ecosystem offers comprehensive solutions to meet the immediate and future needs of your breakthrough science.  Through strategic investments, shared innovation labs, R&D services, and commercial capabilities, we are committed to leveraging the might of our enterprise and global resourcing networks to amplify your innovation.   

Over the last 20 years, Lilly has committed $2B to early biotech through venture investing and has launched solution-focused partnering capabilities with Lilly New Ventures, Chorus, and Lilly Gateway Labs.  By funding and supporting early biotech through strategic investments and development, we support bold science from the very beginning.  We are positioned to help build a brighter, more vibrant life science community tackling the most difficult challenges to meet the needs of patients.   

At Lilly, you can realize the full potential of your innovation through strategic partnerships and collaborations.  Backed by the full strength of our unmatched scientific expertise and global capabilities, Lilly is a partner that understands your needs.
