The Partnership for Clean Competition will support high-quality, high-impact, novel research that has a high likelihood of success and of resulting in methods or products that will advance the anti-doping field and ensure integrity in sport.

Current research priorities are:
  • Developing methods of cost-effective testing to detect and deter the use of prohibited substances and methods.
  • Developing novel testing protocols to detect and deter new or designer substances or methods used to evade detection (e.g., micor-dosing) for doping purposes.
  • Improving existing chromatography-mass spectrometry and other analytical chemistry or biomedical methods to detect particular drugs, ex. GH, IGF-1, EPO, hCG.
  • Developing new analytical methods to detect performance enhancing drugs not currently detectable.
  • Examination of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics of doping substances through human administration studies examining longitudinal urinary excretion patterns, metabolism, and dose-concentration, including confounding factors that may influence excretion, detection, or performance-enhancing impact. This also includes studies which aim to differentiate between sources of contamination and doping by identifying novel discriminate urinary or blood markers or metabolites, or ratios thereof, through well-designed human administration studies.
  • Critical reviews to support interpretation of laboratory data.
  • The application of alternative specimens, (ex. oral fluid, dried blood/plasma spots) for testing and analysis.
  • Discovery and validation of specific and sensitive biomarkers in urine and/or blood for the purposes of the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) that aim to indirectly identify the use of doping substances or methods.
  • Detection of prohibited gene doping, gene editing, gene silencing technologies, as well as the detection of prohibited stem cell therapies.
  • Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other related research that leads to optimization of anti-doping testing programs.
  • Development of effective quantitative and qualitative measures of doping deterrence and education through well-designed survey methods applicable to multiple athlete domains and social science research.
