Working Groups

The PCC recognizes that much of our most significant impact occurs at the intersection of a variety of scientific fields from hematology to chemistry and supports collaboration through our working groups. The working groups supplement the PCC’s individual investigator-based research grants and address specific needs and requirements for new developments in the field of anti-doping research. Current working groups involve growth hormone biomarker validation, oral fluid and dried blood spot sampling and the detection of erythropoietin (EPO). Without the directed and dedicated resources of the PCC Working Groups, inter-disciplinary, problem-based collaborations of this nature, and their subsequent contributions to anti-doping science, are likely to remain unrealized.
