Invested in Speeding Innovation
Building 302 – Lilly’s Small Molecule Design and Development (SMDD) Facility
Building 302 was designed as an innovation hub for Lilly Research Laboratories in our hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. This research and development center features laboratories that facilitate multi-disciplinary collaboration, where researchers utilize advanced technologies to accelerate the development of new medicines across our five therapeutic areas – diabetes, oncology, neurodegeneration, immunology and pain. The facility will focus its efforts on small molecules and synthetic peptides, which currently comprise about half of Lilly's clinical portfolio.
