International Pharmaceutical Aerosol Consortium on Regulation & Science

The International Pharmaceutical Aerosol Consortium on Regulation & Science (IPAC-RS) is an international association that seeks to advance the science, and especially the regulatory science, of orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDPs) by collecting and analyzing data, and conducting joint research and development projects. Representing the OINDP industry since 2000, IPAC-RS aims to build consensus and contribute to effective regulations and standards by sharing the results of its research through conferences, technical journals, webinars, and discussions with regulatory bodies.
IPAC-RS Roundtable Webinar Series 2021

Starting in 2020, IPAC-RS organized a number of roundtables with thought leaders to discuss key regulatory and scientific topics in respiratory products.  Continuing that practice, in 2021, IPAC-RS launched a new series focusing on drug-device combination products with digital components, and digital-health opportunities and challenges more broadly.
