Lilly is a global pharmaceutical company with active programs in Psychiatry areas relevant to this project. Lilly’s commitment to neuroscience is shown by the contribution the company has made to treatments for depression (Prozac, Cymbalta), ADHD (Straterra) and schizophrenia (zyprexa and the revolutionary mGlu2/3 agonists). A number of disease-modifying approaches are currently being tested in the clinic for Alzheimer’s patients. Collaboration is a key plank in the evolving strategy of the company. In the realm of cognition, the Lilly Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience has recently been established as an industrial-academic consortium and post-doctoral fellowship programme focussed on improving animal assays and disease models for the discovery of drugs to treat cognitive impairment associated with cognitive dysfunction. Lilly personnel thus have great expertise in a number of areas that will support this project.
