Charles River offers webinar titled “Physicochemical Profiling of Powders for Inhalation” to present how to determine physicochemical properties of powder test items can reduce aerosol generattion variability and lead to more consistence in doses administered.

Webinar: Designing a Drug for COVID-19: Considerations for Inhaled Therapeutics to Treat Respiratory Diseases

The lungs are the primary organ affected by COVID-19 and effective respiratory therapies are urgently needed to treat patients suffering from the disease. There are many advantages to delivering a therapeutic directly to the lungs, but designing a drug for inhaled delivery is tricky. Watch this presentation to learn more about designing drugs for inhaled delivery.
