Kris and I have been invited to speak at next week’s Tackling Doping in Sport 2011 Conference in London, England.

It promises to be the world’s premiere conference on anti-doping.

It is headlined with such speakers as David Howman (WADA Director General), Pat McQuaid (UCI President), Andy Parkinson (UK Anti-Doping CEO), Travis Tygart (US Anti-Doping Agency CEO), Richard Budgett (Chief Medical Officer for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games) and many others.

The programme includes presentations on using intelligence to combat doping, gene doping, use of hypoxic devices, recent case law, anti-doping in cycling, FIFA ADR, advancements in the use of biological markers, and potential civil liabilities arising from doping control.

Our presentation is entitled ‘Technological Doping: Assessing the competency of sport to regulate technology’ and is part of a session on borderline issues in anti-doping.
