Kyrre Thalberg, PhD

Senior Adviser – Inhalation Product Development | Adjunct Professor – Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University

For almost 30 years, Dr. Thalberg has worked in the field of dry powders for inhalation with AstraZeneca. He has been working with most kinds of dry powder formulation systems and have provided key contributions to a range of successful AZ inhalation products, for instance the Turbuhaler product family.
The toolbox of skills around dry powder inhalers contains selection of raw materials, their compositions and manufacturing processes, and well as physical characterization of formulations (material science), which includes different types of particle size analysis, bulk density and flowability assessment.
Moreover, Dr. Thalberg has also worked on development strategies for inhalation products, involving in depth understanding of critical parameters as well as modelling and simulation of the performance of dry powder inhalers.
Dr. Thalberg is MSc in chemical engineering and PhD in Physical Chemistry with focus on polymers and surfactants (Lund University 1990), and has authored and co-authored approximately 40 publications, whereof 20 are in the field of dry powder inhalation.
