After I posted on Monday about my skepticism about AMRI's claimed increase in medchem resources, AMRI contacted me via Twitter and noted that the increase was due to their new "insourcing" relationships. When I asked which relationships those were and if it was the Lilly relationship, they initially confirmed it and then deleted the tweet about 10 minutes afterward. You can see the exchange below:
As I said, from what I know of the Lilly situation, I don't think that their hoped-for situation would be a positive development for chemists. [cue Lenina Huxley voice]: "Now all chemists work for AMRI."
