12 – Advances in Blood Doping Detection and Analysis – Nikolai Nordsborg, PhD

Nikolai is Associate Professor and Head of the Integrative Physiology Section within the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen. He shares his cutting-edge research on autologous blood transfusion that shows that even small amounts of blood (i.e. 1/2 bag) enhance performance. He also discusses biomarkers for blood doping, dried blood spot tests for testosterone esters, and the importance of developing high-performance environments to solve big problems in anti-doping.
