Reference Materials are a critical resource for anti-doping scientists at WADA-Accredited laboratories, and the PCC has invested over a million dollars to ensure their availability since 2009. For a full list of reference materials available and information on ordering, visit http://www.cleancompetition.org/2017/10/15/reference-materials-available-for-wada-anti-doping-laboratories/
We’re about to reveal big news regarding anti-doping exhaled breath testing technology…but first, how did we get here? Here’s a high level #techtransfer timeline for what could be the next big thing in sample collection for elite sport (and beyond).
This year, the PCC is delighted to attend the 36th Manfred Donike Workshop, held annually in Cologne, Germany. The conference is hosted by Dr. Mario Thevis, head of the Centre for Preventative Doping Research and Vice President of research at the German [...]
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.
The PCC is proud to support young scientific investigators around the world committed to high quality research and discovery. To this end, the PCC supports two American Physiological Society Awards annually: The PCC Postdoctoral Award and the PCC Graduate Award. Both [...]

For our first Myth Vs. Fact blog series installment, we're tackling myths related to the PCC itself! We test athletes Nope! We fund the science that creates and advances anti-doping technology. For instance, the techniques and devices used by sample collection [...]
PCC Grant Application Tip Series: Part 4 (The Importance of Showcasing Anti-Doping Expertise when Applying for a PCC Grant)
Recently, we discussed that 70% of PCC funded primary investigators are NOT affiliated with an anti-doping laboratory at the time of their award. Rather, these researchers represent various fields of science and conduct their projects within academic institutions or industry labs. [...]
A new paper, published by the team led by Dr. David Cowan at the WADA-Accredited Drug Control Centre at King’s College London, has been published in “Rapid Communications in Mass Spectrometry.” The research focuses on the usage of P-III-NP as a [...]
A common misconception about anti-doping science is that practitioners of research in this field are all associated with anti-doping laboratories. In fact, the majority of investigators we fund represent numerous fields of science (from analytical chemistry to physiology), and conduct their [...]
