Who we are
We’re a small group of Lilly employees coming from diverse educational and professional backgrounds in disciplines like pharmacy, philosophy, IT, English, sales and management.
We share the belief that drug development processes must improve, and that open innovation methods can be used to foster necessary changes. We’re also interested in working with patients, caregivers, clinicians, researchers, and IT professionals to make a difference.
What we do
Our aim is to make public data about clinical trials available in a number of useful formats. We develop prototypes for tools that generate, collect and curate public data in new ways in an effort to advance clinical research. We also work to build networks from which communities can emerge to share ideas and shape clinical capabilities for the future. Our work is done in the open and made available to the public, free of charge.

Our current projects
Our projects serve as a starting point. They are intended to prove out value, generate knowledge and kindle innovation in clinical research. We hope the work will inspire you to come up with new ideas that will have a positive impact on how drugs are developed.
We invite you to help transform clinical development for patients, scientists, and drug developers alike. Visit our Application Lab to explore our projects and leave your feedback. Your knowledge and insights are key to adding value to our work as it progresses.
