                           RESEARCH SERVICES AGREEMENT


     THIS RESEARCH SERVICES AGREEMENT (the "Agreement") is made and entered into
effective as of March 22, 2000 (the "Effective Date"), by and between Eli Lilly
and Company, Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN, 46285 ("Lilly"), and
Array BioPharma, Inc., 188533 d Street, Boulder, CO, 80301 ("Array") (together
Lilly and Array, the "Parties").


                                    RECITALS

     WHEREAS, Lilly is engaged in the discovery, development, manufacturing and
marketing of pharmaceutical products; and

     WHEREAS, Array provides research services in all aspects of chemistry, high
through-put screening, structural biology, and information management; and

     WHEREAS, Lilly proposes to retain Array for the specific purpose of
providing chemical research, analysis, manufacturing of specialty chemical
products or related services that Array may offer.

     NOW, THEREFORE, it is agreed as follows:


                                    ARTICLE I

                                   DEFINITIONS

     Terms defined in this Article I and parenthetically elsewhere shall have
the same meaning throughout this Agreement, including the recitals. Defined
terms may be used in the singular or plural.

     1.1 "ARRAY ALLIANCE MANAGER" shall have the meaning set forth in Section
2.11.

     1.2 "ARRAY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION" means (1) any and all Array Technology
and (2) any and all information, items, material or know-how (whether or not
patentable), except Project Rights and Array Processes, that is disclosed to
and/or received by Lilly from Array (whether orally, in writing, through
observation, or otherwise) during the term of this Agreement or prior to the
Effective Date, including, without limitation, any and all suggestions,
descriptions, ideas, inventions (whether or not patentable) discoveries,
know-how, trade secrets, techniques, data, strategies, methods, syntheses,
processes, practices, documents, apparatus, devices, chemical formulations,
chemical synthesis, compounds, composition of matter, chemical samples, assays,
cell lines, vectors, screens, databases, database structures, and data analysis
methods.

     Array Confidential Information shall not include any information that Lilly
can prove by competent evidence: (a) is now, or hereafter becomes, through no
act or failure to act on the part of Lilly, generally known or available; (b) is
known by Lilly at the time of receiving such information; (c) is hereafter
disclosed to Lilly by a Third Party, as a matter of right and without
restriction on disclosure; (d) is independently developed by Lilly without the
aid, application, or use of Array Confidential Information; (e) is the subject
of a written permission to disclose provided by Array; or (f) is required to be
disclosed by law, government agency, court order or valid discovery request in
connection with a legal proceeding

     1.3 "ARRAY FTE" means a full time equivalent scientific person year
consisting of no less than a total of [ * ] of Project Services carried out by a
Lilly approved, Array employee who is either (except as the Parties may
otherwise agree in writing) (i) the Array Alliance Manager or (ii) an Array
Project Leader, Senior Chemist, or Associate Chemist exclusively assigned and
fully dedicated to Projects. Time spent by Array FTEs will qualify for
reimbursement under Subsection (a) of Section 4.1 only if it involves Project
Services on or directly related to a Project.

     1.4 "ARRAY PROCESS" means a chemical method or process that Array owns or
has a right to license and that Array used, by its choice, in at least one
Project, but the term expressly excludes all high-speed synthesis technology and
methods of Array.

Array employees working on a particular Project who, unless otherwise agreed to
by the Parties in writing, has a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, at least [ * ] of
professional medicinal chemistry experience, and previous project leadership
experience. Each Array Project Leader shall be responsible for managing the
day-to-day activities of Array FTEs assigned to his/her particular Project to
achieve the Project's goals in accordance with the Work Plan. An Array Project
Leader is subordinate to a Project's Lilly Project Leader regarding all aspects
of such Project, and therefore, any disagreements between them regarding the
direction, priorities, goals or other aspects of the Project shall be resolved
ultimately by the Lilly Project Leader.

     1.6 "ARRAY TECHNOLOGY" means Array inventions (whether or not patentable)
and Array know-how. Array Technology expressly excludes all Project Rights
regardless of Array's contribution to such Rights and, for purposes of this
Agreement, also expressly excludes Array Processes.

     1.7 "ASSOCIATE CHEMIST" means an Array employee who has at least a Masters
Degree in organic chemistry or its equivalent (i.e., a Bachelor Degree in
organic chemistry with several years of chemistry experience), but who is
neither an Array Project Leader, nor a Senior Chemist, nor the Array Alliance
Manager.

30, September 30, or December 31.

endorsed by the FDA (or in the case of foreign jurisdictions, comparable
regulatory standards), including those procedures expressed or implied in the

issue with the FDA or foreign regulatory agents.

U.S. regulations 21 CFR Section 210 et seq., and the EEC Guide to Good

Array (by itself or jointly with Lilly) as a direct or indirect result of
performing Project Services or Other Services.
