Pharmaceutical and Molecular Biotechnology Research Centre (PMBRC) researcher’s poster makes an impression at Respiratory Drug Delivery Europe

Cordula Weiss, Postgraduate Researcher, PMBRC was awarded the VCU RDD Peter R Byron Graduate Student Award 2017 at the Respiratory Drug Delivery Europe/RDD Europe 2017 conference in France.
Respiratory Drug Delivery Europe is a major conference for those involved in the research, development, testing and marketing of medicines, devices and services associated with pulmonary or nasal products.
As part of the conference, all accepted graduate student poster abstracts are automatically eligible for the VCU RDD Peter R. Byron Graduate Student Award. This award is funded by an endowment at Virginia Commonwealth University's Medical College of Virginia Foundation and is named after Peter Byron Emeritus Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and Director of Respiratory Drug Delivery (RDD) Conferences.
Weiss is working on a project in the field of respiratory drug delivery, more specifically in drug delivery based on dry powder inhalation and will present her results at the WIT Research Day 2017 (poster presentation) on 18 May 2017.
“The work I presented at RDD Europe 2017 was about the use of a combination of X-ray diffraction (XRD), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) to look at the properties of these solvates, at the interaction between BDP and the solvent and at the impact these interactions may have on their physical characteristics,” says Weiss.
The Pharmaceutical and Molecular Biotechnology Research Centre (PMBRC) is an applied research centre which aims to support the sustainable growth of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry in the south east of Ireland.
