Lilly is committed to protecting the human rights and well-being of clinical research subjects and the welfare of animal research subjects. Research ethics at Lilly encompasses bioethics and animal care and use.
Lilly has a rich history of creating breakthrough products that enhance and preserve life. Today, our commitment to scientific research and development (R&D) remains as strong as ever, and we’ve developed some innovative approaches that are helping us speed the creation of new medicines. Yet we recognize that the responsibilities we have go far beyond our laboratories.
At all stages of the development and use of our medicines, Lilly strives to maintain the highest standards of ethical behavior. This begins with our Bioethics Program and guiding principles, and is reflected in our commitment to safeguard and protect the rights of people who participate in our research and use our products. It is also reflected in our commitment to using animals in research only when needed, and ensuring their humane treatment.
The Lilly Bioethics Program is designed to address the increasingly complex ethical challenges of global pharmaceutical R&D in today's fast-paced biotechnology environment.
Lilly recognizes its ethical and scientific obligations to ensure the appropriate treatment of animals used in research for the discovery and development of the highest quality products that improve the well-being of people and animals around the world.
