The DDL Charter

The overarching aim of DDL is to provide an annual forum for formulators, clinicians, engineers, analysts, academics and all other professionals involved in developing medicines for inhalation. DDL is a non-commercial meeting that is organised by a small group of  volunteers drawn from across academia and industry.  The conference is primarily financed by sponsorship, with the remaining costs being covered by the conference registration fees.
