Research and Development

Tackling global challenges with innovation

Elanco works with global customers, veterinarians, and industry leaders to gain key market insights that depict current and future needs.

To help ensure creativity, accountability, and quality in meeting those needs, we employ the best scientists and pharmaceutical product developers and structure our research and development process into four stages:

  • Research and External Innovation: Identifying products or technologies that could be applied to unmet or under-met customer needs.
  • Early Development: Designing a specific formulation, assessing safety, proving efficacy, defining dosages, and developing an efficient manufacturing process
  • Late Development and Registration: Conducting definitive studies on product efficacy and effectiveness, animal safety, human safety and environmental toxicology, and providing other required information (such as product stability studies) to meet regulatory requirements.
  • Support: Providing in-depth technical support for customers, partners or regulators, while continuing to evaluate new and better uses for products and translating learnings from customers back in to the R&D process.
