2018 was an amazing year for PCC scientists: nearly $4 M USD was awarded, including four Fellowships to promising young PhDs, and products of PCC research were published and/or presented around the world by more than 20 PCC investigators. But few [...]
When US Pro Sports leagues and Olympic programs couldn't get access to the tubes they required for their drug programs, the PCC funded a micro-grant to ensure access to the equipment they needed.
New nanomaterials could provide fast and sensitive detection of growth hormone peptides, anabolic-androgenic steroids, and banned stimulants within seconds.
Dr. Chi and his team at Duke University have been funded to directly detect Autologous Blood Transfusion (ABT), also known as blood doping, through isolation of exosomes. Learn more about Dr. Chi via his lab page.
Dr. Geoff Miller, currently Research & Laboratory Manager at the WADA-Accredited Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory (SMRTL) in Utah, discusses the PCC Fellowship which facilitated his career in anti-doping science. Dr. Miller is the first PhD scientist to complete the PCC [...]
How do chemists support clean sport and clean athletes? We are pleased to share this excellent overview of the role of chemistry in anti-doping collection and analysis techniques, featuring PCC funded researcher Dr. David Cowan, and PCC Fellow Dr. Liying Jiang, both [...]
At our 2017 Conference, several leading edge technologies were unveiled (including testing using dried plasma spots, and breath) that could make anti-doping testing cheaper and easier for leagues, and less invasive for athletes. The PCC invited Mr. Dan Halem, Chief Legal Officer [...]
