Mr. Eli Lilly (grandson of the company founder, Colonel Eli Lilly)
"Research is the heart of the business, the soul of the enterprise."
Searching for the next breakthrough is not a one-person job. In fact, it’s not a one-company job either. Discovering life-changing medicines requires a diverse team of dedicated experts from different places and with different viewpoints and approaches. Collaboration, even if the term seems overused, is what allows us to discover medicines more efficiently and successfully. Plus, as scientists who are passionate about what we do, there’s nothing we love more than to discuss, debate and examine our research as ways to improve our approach to discovering new medicines.
