The American Physiological Society presented the Environmental and Exercise Physiology Section Partnership for Clean Competition Anti-doping Research Awards to two outstanding scientists in Spring 2020.

This year’s award for predoctoral research goes to James Vanhie of the University of Ottawa.

The postdoctoral award goes to Jacob Bejder of the University of Copenhagen, who conducts his research as part of a fellowship funded by the Partnership for Clean Competition.

The awards, chosen by the American Physiological Society, focus on outstanding research in environmental, exercise, thermal, or applied physiology. The research must be associated with ergogenics and detection of performance-enhancing drugs and procedures or impact of training/environmental stress on hematological profiles.  

Each winner receives a $2,000 prize.

Congratulations to these two scientists on the recognition of their hard work.
