Innovative Medicines

Since our founding by Colonel Eli Lilly in 1876, we’ve pioneered numerous medical breakthroughs that have improved life for millions. We’ve played a leading role in fighting diabetes, discovering life-saving antibiotics, revolutionizing mental health and more.

Lilly currently has one of the strongest Phase III pipelines in our history. Our key therapeutic areas include diabetes, oncology, neuroscience and autoimmune diseases. Our greatest contribution to society will always be the medicines we make and the role they play in making life better for people around the world.
