Resource description

Project Title: Epigenetic profiling to detect doping abuse

Researchers: Dr. P. Diel, Dr. C. Gerhauser, Dr. C. Plass

Institution: German Sports University, Germany

Year approved: 2012

Summary: In the proposed project experts from the center of preventative doping research of the German Sports University and from the Division Epigenomics and Cancer Risk Factors of the German Cancer Research Center want to combine their skills to identify a signature of genes differentially methylated by doping abuse. Therefore data from animal experiments, training studies in humans and a field study with bodybuilders abusing anabolic steroids will be combined.
