In todays SweDeliver & NextBioForm Seminar, PhD student Sohan Sarangi will present his research within the SweDeliver Work package Pulmonary drug delivery. Welcome to join online 15 April, 12:15–13:00 via Zoom.

Abstract  Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs) have become an effective alternative for pulmonary drug delivery. It consists of an ordered mixture consisting of adhesive units comprising of micronized drug particles (< 5microns) attached onto a considerably larger carrier particle (~ 100 microns). In this work we attempt a parametric study of stability and segregation of adhesive mixtures during handling using numerical techniques and focusing on the size and property of carrier particles.
