Funded Projects

The PCC has supported world-class research since 2008, investing more than $34 M to drive novel science. Research and grant-making are the foundation of the PCC and are the focus of everyday business activity. PCC-supported research contributes to a movement in addressing doping’s root causes and ultimately decreasing the use of performance-enhancing drugs by all participants in all sports at all levels of play.

Funded PCC projects represent proposals from 23 different countries and three continents. More than 100 principle investigators have been awarded grants to advance anti-doping knowledge through more than 250 unique research projects. Projects which showcase alignment with the PCC research priorities are given funding precedence.
