Pulmonary Drug Delivery

The Drug Pulmonary Drug Delivery Workshop (PDD) is dedicated to research on pulmonary drug delivery. The programme of the two-day conference consists of lectures covering six session themes. The workshop welcomes professionals from industry and governmental agencies as well as students and scientists from academia. It is intended to offer its participants a forum to learn about inhalation drug delivery from opinion leaders in the field and discuss aerosol related topics in a casual atmosphere.

This year’s event, for the first time, features a session dedicated specifically to junior researchers, in which they can present their data and seek direct feedback from their international colleagues.

The venue of the PDD workshop alternates between Dublin and Istanbul to accommodate participants from Western and Central Europe and Eastern Europe and the Middle East, respectively. The first PDD Workshop was organised by Dr. Carsten Ehrhardt at Trinity College Dublin with an aim to provide a relaxed setting to meet colleagues, discuss research and engage in new collaborative efforts. The Istanbul meetings are organised by Associated Professor Dr. Ayca Yıldız Peköz of Istanbul University.
