Science & Medical

WADA's responsibilities in the science and medical fields include, among others, the accreditation of anti-doping laboratories, science research, the Prohibited Listthe Athlete Biological Passport and Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE).

Scientific Events

In order to meet the constantly evolving scientific challenges in the fight against doping in sport and to assess new developments in the field of anti-doping testing and analysis, WADA organizes scientific meetings and symposia that bring together international scientists and experts in relevant fields of anti-doping science. Under the umbrella of WADA, expert working groups are formed to address specific scientific issues pertaining to the identification and detection of doping substances and practices.
