Lilly Co. Opens New Research and Development Lab

Eli Lilly and Co. officially opened a new $75 million research facility on Friday that it says will make it more nimble in developing new drugs and bringing them to market.
Building 302, located Downtown just off Kentucky Avenue, has the capability to have lab spaces inserted and removed as needed. With laboratory wiring and piping hoisted into the ceiling, researchers can easily detach equipment and reconfigure space for new research.
This allows the facility to recycle itself, rather than require the company to build more space every time the pharmaceutical industry trends toward newer forms of drug production.
