Eli Lilly starts online course in drug development - Jeff Swiatek, Indianapolis Star

Eli Lilly University? That's pushing it. But the drug maker's inner academic side might be coming out. Eli Lilly and Co. said Tuesday it has developed a college-level course that will be offered at participating colleges. The online course, not surprisingly, deals with drug discovery and development. Lilly said it developed the graduate-level course with experts at 10 academic institutions. Lilly footed the bill, which it didn't disclose, and the academic experts donated their time, said Lilly spokesman Mark Taylor. Lilly will unveil the e-learning course, called "Making Medicines: The Process of Drug Development," at an American Osteopathic Association conference in Florida this weekend and launch the course in 2016. It will be offered as an elective at participating colleges.
