PCC 2017 Conference on Anti-Doping Science (NYC, USA):

Conference – Dr. Mario Thevis, head of the Centre for Preventative Doping Research at the German Sports University Cologne, presented the results of his research on Sensabues’ EB technology at the Partnership for Clean Competition’s 2017 Conference on Anti-Doping Science (11-12 April, MLB HQ, New York City). Dr. Thevis’ session will showcase how breath testing could work in an anti-doping setting as a rapid, non-invasive and inexpensive alternative to current methods for collection and analysis of athletes’ doping control samples. This study was funded by a grant from the Partnership for Clean Competition. Professor Thevis is a forensic chemist and a member of the Prohibited List Expert Group for the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
