- PeptiDream to receive an up front, ~$1.235B upon achievement of development, regulatory & commercial milestones along with royalties.

- PeptiDream will lead the peptide discovery & optimization efforts. Lilly will lead payload discovery & optimization efforts along with development aspects of any PDC products
- The collaboration focus is to identify the high-affinity macrocyclic peptide ligands for TOI (chosen by Lilly) & deliver a Lilly-conjugated payload to specific cells and tissues using PeptiDream’s PDPS technology
