The university plans to announce Monday that a bat discovered by one of its researchers can be named for a company, a person Ã¢?? pick your poison.
So, yes, the common name of the bat could conceivably become the Eli Lilly bat. Or the Jim Brainard bat. And Purdue gets the money.
Sorry, the scientific name isnÃ¢??t for sale.
Purdue isnÃ¢??t disclosing the asking price until Monday.
How do you like the idea?
