Anti-Doping Research Grants
The Partnership for Clean Competition funds scientific research that advances knowledge within the anti-doping sphere.
Research priorities include:
- Developing methods of cost-effective testing to detect and deter the use of banned and illegal substances.
- Developing testing protocols to detect designer substances used for doping purposes.
- Improving existing analytical methods to detect particular drugs, ex. GH, IGF-1, EPO, hCG.
- Developing analytical methods to detect performance enhancing drugs not currently detectable.
- Longitudinal urinary excretion patterns, metabolism and dose-concentration.
- Critical reviews to support interpretation of laboratory data.
- Alternative specimens, (ex. oral fluid, dried blood/plasma spots) for testing
The Partnership for Clean Competition offers three grant cycles a year. The PCC also offers micro-grants, accepted year round for projects requiring less than $75,000 and six months to complete, and Fellowships for young scientists interested in beginning a career in anti-doping.
