Science and the Law intersect in many different places- one of them being in doping.
As part of my responsibilities as the co-chair of the Forensic Science section of the ACS-Chemistry and the Law Division, I organized a unique workshop dealing with anti-doping laws and science which was held at the 249th ACS National Meeting & Exposition on March 23, 2015. The session was attended by many lawyers, scientists, and experts in sports medicine.
The lectures that were presented were:
Evolution of the world anti-doping code by Richard Young (Bryan Cave LLP, Colorado Springs, Co)
Deterring performance-enhancing drug use in sports: The role of science by Larry Bowers (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Colorado Springs, CO)
Deterring performance-enhancing drug use in sports: The role of investigations by William Bock (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Colorado Springs, CO)
Role of World Anti-Doping Agency accredited laboratories in the fight against doping by Daniel Eichner (Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory) Salt Lake City, UT
Followed by an informative panel discussion.
It was truly an honor to be part of such an informative and cutting-edge session.
