    arrow-rightInnovation in Pulmonary Drug Delivery for Local and Systemic Treatment of Chronic Diseases

    Time: 08:00 AM - 10:00 AM

    Location: MassBio, 300 Technology Square, eighth floor, Cambridge

    The pharmaceutical industry has realized the value of inhaled therapies to treat chronic diseases by local delivery to the lungs and pursued the potential of systemic delivery via the pulmonary vasculature. The failure of high-profile inhaled insulin programs in the last decade brought to question the value of such innovative products, however, opportunities to improve patient outcomes with pulmonary delivery is driving continued development of new technologies. Our panel of experts will discuss areas for innovation. April 29, 8:00-10:00am, MassBio, 300 Technology Square, eighth floor, Cambridge. Registration is required.
