Who is Eli Lilly and Company?

Lilly is a global healthcare leader that unites caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We were founded more than a century ago by Colonel Eli Lilly, a man committed to creating high quality medicines that meet real needs and today, we remain true to that mission in all our work.

Across the globe, Lilly employees work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to communities through philanthropy and volunteering. At Lilly, we’re inspired to make a difference in people’s lives every day.

Since our founding, we’ve pioneered major breakthroughs like insulin and the polio vaccine, and we’ve worked to make sure these discoveries reach the people around the world who need them most. Everyone at Lilly is passionate about building on these contributions and is determined to deliver on our promise to make life better for individuals and communities.

Our founder, Colonel Eli Lilly charged us to "take what you find here and make it better and better. " Whether this takes the form of discovering new medicines, finding new ways to support patients or improving our communities, we strive to improve the lives of those we serve in our work each day.

The Lilly name is a promise. The red script, an evolved version of our founder’s signature, is a sign of our proud past and our exciting future. Our promise is simple:
