About TFF Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
TFF Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is an early-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing innovative drug products based on its patented Thin Film Freezing, or TFF, technology platform.

The Company plans to add to this pipeline by collaborating with large pharmaceutical partners. The TFF Platform is protected by 36 patents issued or pending in the US and internationally.
