Richmond Pharmacology contributed 98 of the 124 patients enrolled in this study, five times more than the next site in terms of recruitment. We are proud of our extraordinary contribution to this study, all achieved during the confines of a global pandemic. Our dedicated team of physicians and researchers worked tirelessly during this time to bring about a potential breakthrough in the treatment of hypertension.
