Lilly makes medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives. We were founded by Eli Lilly in 1876, and are now the 10th largest pharmaceutical company in the world. We have steadfastly remained independent, but not isolated. Across the globe, Lilly has developed productive alliances and partnerships that advance our capacity to develop innovative medicines at lower costs. Lilly is consistently ranked as one of the best companies in the world to work for, and generations of Lilly employees have sustained a culture that values excellence, integrity, and respect for people. Lilly's global employees number approximately 40,000, and our medicines are marketed in 143 countries. Lilly has major research and development facilities in eight countries and conducts clinical trials in more than 50 countries.

Making medicines has never been easy. But in today's global health care environment, the challenges are unprecedented. Familiar ways of working aren't working anymore, so Lilly is transforming to meet the challenges head on — from how we make medicines to how we talk about them. Throughout our organization, we're asking tough questions and discovering better answers.

Around the world people are in need of health care. People with medical needs above and beyond the capabilities of existing medicine. It is here, at the edge of science and medicine that Lilly begins. Lilly has embraced a bold vision. We intend to make a significant contribution to humanity by improving global health in the 21st century. Starting with the work of our scientists, we will place improved outcomes for individual patients at the center of what we do. We will listen carefully to understand patient needs and work with health care partners to provide meaningful benefits for the people who depend on us.

Lilly, a leading innovation driven corporation, is developing a growing portfolio of pharmaceutical products by applying the latest research from its own worldwide laboratories and from collaborations with eminent scientific organizations. Headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind., Lilly provides answers through medicines and information for some of the world’s most urgent medical needs.
