2015 World Anti-Doping Code
Professor Yannis Pitsiladis, Professor of Sport and Exercise Science at the School of Sport and Service Management, attended the medical and scientific multidisciplinary consensus meeting on Anti-Doping in Sport.
The meeting took place at the home of FIFA in Zurich and its aim was to create a roadmap for the implementation of the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code. The papers delivered at the consensus meeting will be published in themed edition of the British Journal of Sports Medicine along with the consensus statement.
The consensus statement and accompanying papers set out the priorities for the anti-doping community in research, science and medicine. This consensus is timed to coincide with the publication of the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code and brings together the latest scientific and medical evidence and reaffirms the commitment of science and medicine in the fight against doping in sport.
