Aptar Pharma, the leader in respiratory drug delivery solutions and RDD Online, organizers of Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD) conferences, are pleased to announce their co-organization of Virtual RDD 2021, which will feature live discussions between May 4-7, 2021, and extended on-demand access to presentations from April 27- June 30, 2021. This virtual conference breaks traditional barriers between speakers, poster presenters, and exhibitors to connect pulmonary and nasal drug delivery experts worldwide.
In response to the global pandemic, co-organizers RDD Online and Aptar Pharma have reimagined how delegates receive critical updates and interact with one another. As such, the renowned RDD Europe conference series continues this year as an innovative and exciting virtual event, which will bring the latest developments in respiratory drug delivery to a broader global audience on a timescale that respects everyone’s additional commitments during the pandemic.
“RDD conferences have been bringing the respiratory world together for years, but this year, RDD 2021 unites scientists and clinicians in industry, government, and academia with renewed purpose,” said Richard Dalby, one of the RDD conferences organizers.
Professor Gisli Jenkins, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, will deliver the keynote presentation addressing Alveolar Injury and Fibrogenesis’s Mechanisms: Developing Stratified Approaches for Pulmonary Fibrosis Treatment. Themed Knowledge Spaces at RDD 2021 will deliver one-stop access to presentations from U.S. FDA, academic and industry experts, poster presentations from established and up-and-coming young scientists, and workshop presentations’ latest product developments and services innovations within the respiratory field. The RDD 2021 Knowledge Space themes are:
Pulmonary Progress: Respiratory Science Responds to SARS-CoV2 and Lung Diseases
Propelling Inhalation Forward: Tools to Facilitate Low GWP Propellant Transition
Towards Greener Connectivity: Balancing the Needs of Patients and Our Planet
Perfecting Inhaled Particles: Advanced Inhaled Formulation Science
Front and Center: The Nose: Evaluating Regional Nasal Deposition
From the Knowledge Spaces, delegates will have the opportunity to connect in real-time during Explore with Experts moderated discussions between 4:00–6:15 PM CET on each day of live RDD 2021 events. RDD Messaging and Meeting scheduling will allow experts and delegates to interact both during and after the conference.
RDD 2021 will include the widely sought-after Workshop Presentations, which enable delegates to discover new solutions, explore opportunities and enter into dialogue directly with the workshop presenters. This year, Conversations with Workshop Presenters will take place on Thursday, May 6 at 5:15 PM CET.
