Booth Number: Table nr. 64

RDD Europe 2019 will be held at the Estoril Congress Center in Portugal and Hovione will be present.


Hovione, together with Hovione Technology will present an interactive workshop session:

Fully Integrated Dry Powder Solutions

  • Wednesday, May 8th | 2:00pm, 3:15pm and 4:30pm – Room F7
  • Presented by: Beatriz Fernandes, M.Sc., Eunice Costa, Ph.D., João Ventura, Ph.D.and Maria Braga, Ph.D.

This session will review traditional and advanced formulation approaches for inhalation and nasal delivery, coupling key aspects across particle engineering as well as formulation and device design. Case studies will be presented focused on the interaction between traditional carrier-based formulation components and the final outcome in terms of aerodynamic performance, manufacturability and expected lung dose. Further case studies will look at carrier-free formulations for DPIs and for nasal applications, advanced particle engineering technologies applicable to labile biomolecules and finally design optimization of a cost-effective capsule-based inhaler and device development targeting high dose delivery.
Hovione will also have two Communications:
