Symposium: Anti-doping – a scientific approach

The Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports will host a three-day symposium entitled “Anti-doping – a scientific approach”.

The aim of the symposium is to disseminate and discuss state-of-the-art knowledge of physiology and emerging technologies relevant for detection of banned methods and substances with a link to basic research and with a clinical application.

Some of the presented methods are also highly relevant in other research areas and with a relevance for populations other than elite athletes, e.g. individual profiling relating to personal medicine with great potential in a public health perspective.

The speakers are all leading international experts within their respective fields, and the symposium will have a special focus on omics technologies, hematology and steroids.

A poster session will be organized.
