Updates from the Aerosol Research Group at VCU

Research Projects

Our pharmaceutical aerosol development laboratories are located on the MCV campus of Virginia Commonwealth University. Our interdisciplinary group works in collaboration with Dr Worth Longest (Department of Mechanical Engineering) to combine computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and design engineering to produce novel pharmaceutical aerosol drug delivery systems.

  • Our groups have also focused on the development of innovative in silico and in vitro methods to assess the pulmonary deposition from commercial inhalers using realistic oropharyngeal models.
  • Other projects are focused on nasal drug delivery and characterizing deposition and absorption nasal spray products using realistic airway models.
