Golden Paragraph: Ludmila Mašková is a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute of Chemical Processes Fundamentals of the CAS in Prague, Czech Republic. The primary research activity of Ludmila in SimInhale is the detailed characterisation of aerodynamic properties of inhalable particles generated by different devices and formulations, and comparison of number and mass particle size distributions in the wide size range (3 nm – 20 µm). During the Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) Ludmila cooperated with the Department of Pharmacy of the University of Parma, Italy, at formulation and detailed characterisation of spray-dried antibiotics powders for inhalation used for treatment of cystic fibrosis. The STSM strongly advanced her understanding of methods for inhaled formulation manufacturing and chemical characterisation of the medical aerosols.
