Proud to support Clinical Trials Day - 20th May 2023

The first clinical trial took place in 1747 aboard the HMS Salisbury by the pioneering scientist, James Lind. He aimed to study the affect of citrus fruits on men diagnosed with Scurvy, and found the fruit to be a highly effective treatment for the disease.

Today, over 300,000 clinical trials take place every year. Richmond Pharmacology are proud to be part of the industry providing new treatments to patients, and to date we have contributed over 30 new medicines to the market alongside our sponsors.
