Welcome to the Lilly TrialGuide Blog!

LTG Intro_Feature

Welcome to the new Lilly TrialGuide blog! Here, we will share ideas, experiences and knowledge about clinical trials from the perspectives of all involved in research--from patients and caregivers to research site staff, from health care innovators to Lilly employees.

Lilly TrialGuide is our new home for Lilly Trials blogs, and we will no longer post on LillyPad. For those of you who have read our blogs in the past, you can expect to see familiar authors (like me) and meet new folks from Lilly and the broader clinical research community. We will be publishing our favorite posts here from the archives, as we continue to share new articles exploring important topics and personal experiences related to research.

Be sure to connect with us on Twitter to share your thoughts and ask questions about our content. Also, follow our Twitter feed to learn when new blog posts and features are released. We love hearing from you!

We're excited to have you join us here on Lilly TrialGuide and hope you enjoy exploring our blog articles as much as we enjoy creating them for you.
