What We Do

Our mission includes finding answers for some of the world's most urgent medical needs. We focus our internal research efforts primarily on four Core therapeutic areas: bio-medicines, diabetes, oncology and animal health. We also continue to pursue innovative science and new opportunities beyond our targeted disease categories.

Lilly Bio-Medicines
Lilly Bio-Medicines is the largest and most diverse of Lilly’s four business unit and is dedicated to the areas of autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders, neuroscience and men’s health – erectile dysfunction and testosterone deficiency.  Bio-Medicines comprises a combination of currently available prescription medicines and a number of potential future medicines or pipeline molecules.


Lilly Diabetes
Lilly Diabetes recognises that helping to make life better for people with diabetes is more than just providing medicines.  It’s also about providing education, resources and practical support to help meet individual patient needs. In addition, we continue to build and nurture our late stage pipeline to support the diverse needs of patients across the disease continuum.


Lilly Oncology
Lilly Oncology has an unwavering focus on helping, and improving outcomes for individual patients with cancer and the clinicians who treat them. For more than five decades, Lilly Oncology has been dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that improve the lives of people living with cancer. Because no two cancer patients are alike, Lilly Oncology is committed to developing novel treatment approaches and speeding innovation. Currently with one of the most robust oncology pipelines, our quest is to build on our strong heritage by further developing a broad portfolio of tailored therapies that accelerate the pace and progress of cancer care.


Lilly Research and Development
Lilly Research Laboratories (LRL) discovers and develops high- quality innovative medicines that help patients live longer, healthier, happier lives.
