Responsibilities

The Clinical Innovation (CI) component within Lilly Research Laboratories (LRL) is responsible for developing and establishing innovative, transformative capabilities within the Medicines Development Unit (MDU). CI is tackling today’s biggest business problems in clinical trial. We are exploring and creating new and better ways to bring patients and health care providers (investigators) together to participate in clinical development. Participation rates among eligible patients are poor: Many lack awareness of clinical research as a viable healthcare option; for most, trial participation is either inconvenient or inaccessible; and those who do participate are often left un-inspired, lacking information, choice, support, and appreciation. We are designing a new clinical development ecosystem and testing its feasibility and scalability to ultimately realize value through faster trial enrollment, reduction in trial duration and size, enhanced patient safety, and accelerated research conclusions.

CI has a portfolio of projects as components of larger capibilities, and CI’s work process includes exploring new ideas, developing clear proof-of-concepts to validate the idea, and execution of applied pilots for learning and risk/benefit/value identification for eventual broad scaling of the project across the MDU and associated business units.

The Consultant Innovation Content Marketing Lead will lead the development of a content marketing discipline for clinical trial awareness/education to patients and the public. The Consultant Innovation Lead will shape the project implementation approach, develop clear delivery milestones, lead the project team in execution, and partner with extended CI colleagues for portfolio integration, oversight and communication on project delivery. Further, the The Consultant Innovation Content Marketing Lead will be responsible for risk identification, mitigation, and overall delivery accountability for their assigned project.
