Richard Watkins is a doctor who is researching multiple sclerosis.
Richard's wife was diagnosed with MS. In an effort to help her, he developed a drug to treat MS. However, when the patent on that ran out, he wanted to develop another one. He developed Celinex, but when he realized the drug wasn't working for his wife, he tanked the trial by poisoning the participants with belladonna so he could start over and give his wife a chance.
He is married. His wife has MS, which is why his research focuses on finding a cure. When the treatment he developed wasn't working for her, he tanked the trial so he could start working on a new drug sooner.
He's a doctor and researcher at CalSci and MedGenix. He specifically researches treatments for multiple sclerosis.
