Paper: Construction of a Full Airway Volume “Total Inhalable Deposition in an Actuated Lung” (TIDAL) Model for Approximating Spatial Deposition Under Breathing Profiles
Catherine Fromen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware. She received her PhD in Chemical Engineering from North Carolina State University in 2014 and performed postdoctoral studies at the University of Michigan as a University of Michigan’s President’s Postdoctoral Fellow. She joined the University of Delaware in 2017, where her research group focuses on applying chemical engineering principles to challenges surrounding pulmonary drug delivery. Her research and publications have spanned the design of inhalable immune-modulatory formulations and the development of experimental dynamic, full volume approximations of the airways. Prof. Fromen has authored over 40 manuscripts and patents and her team’s work has been recognized with recent awards, including the AIChE’s 35 Under 35 Award and an NIH ESI MIRA Award. She is a member of numerous professional societies, including ISAM, ATS, and AAPS INC.
