We unite caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We’re committed to bringing life-changing medicines to those who need them, advancing the understanding and management of disease, and providing meaningful support to patients living with illness and to the people who care for them.
Since our founding by Colonel Eli Lilly in 1876, we have pioneered medical breakthroughs like human insulin and the polio vaccine and set a high standard for philanthropy and volunteerism. We are passionate about building on this precedent in our continued pursuit to make life better for individuals, communities, and the world around us.
We make medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives.
Integrity, excellence, respect for people
We will make a significant contribution to humanity by improving global health in the 21st century.
