Health, Medical & Research Committee

The expert advice of the Health, Medical and Research Committee enables WADA to serve as a world leader on health, medical and research issues related to drug-free sport.

Among many of the Committee’s activities are the monitoring of scientific developments in sport with the aim to safeguard doping-free sport practice, as well as the overseeing of the following Expert Groups: Prohibited List, Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE), Laboratory accreditation, and Gene Doping.
