Pulmonary and Nasal Drug Development Industry Experts to Attend RDD Europe
The Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD®) Europe scientific conference will welcome pulmonary and nasal drug delivery experts from around the world to Antibes, France.
To be held from 25 April to 28 April, the event is a major conference bringing together experts from around the world to exchange emerging scientific knowledge. It provides a dynamic forum for business networking, with approximately 450 delegates from 29 countries attended in 2015.
RDD Europe attracts high-level academic, industrial, and regulatory scientists. It is well received with companies involved in the research, development, testing, and marketing of medicines, devices, and services associated with pulmonary or nasal products.
A premium, interactive three-day conference
This year, the conference will start with a plenary lecture entitled Patient ‘Focused Device Design: Addressing Inhaler Technique’, hosted by Federico Lavorini from the Department of Experimental and Respiratory Medicine at Careggi University Hospital in Florence, Italy.
Subsequent sessions will focus on:
- Progress in inhaled drug development
- Can connected devices improve respiratory outcomes?
- Changing regulations in Europe
- Achieving deposition equivalence
- Novel approaches to characterise aerosol dynamics
- Designing inhalation products in a quality by design era
As part of the conference, RDD Europe 2017 will underline innovative research contributions in both podium and scientific poster sessions. Scientific posters will highlight recent nasal and pulmonary pharmaceutical research. Five of the best posters will be showcased during ‘Posters on the Podium’, a fast-paced interactive session in the main auditorium. All accepted graduate student poster abstracts are automatically eligible for the VCU RDD Peter R. Byron Graduate Student Award.
The event will also host 12 workshops led by device experts and service providers. Participants can self-select and attend interactive technical workshops highlighting innovative technologies, products and services.
Valuable networking opportunities
RDD Europe offers numerous networking opportunities including the Technology Exhibition, which displays innovative technologies and services throughout the conference. Device and equipment designers, as well as service providers and consultants can interact and share their input.
A networking cocktail reception will take place on the evening of 25 April and a gala dinner sponsored by Aptar Pharma will be hosted on 27 April.
For many years, RDD Europe events have reached capacity, so early registration is strongly recommended. The early bird rate will be available until January 16.
