Having been a part of USADA since its inception in 2000, Dr. Larry Bowers is a leading voice in the fight for clean sport. He has authored more than 100 papers, books, and other texts on a wide range of subjects, including drug metabolism and analytical toxicology, while also testifying as an expert witness for cases related to testing protocol and the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Protecting clean athletes’ rights by detecting and deterring the use of dangerous, banned performance-enhancing substances and methods is at the core of what USADA does.
Athletes under USADA’s jurisdiction are prohibited from using the substances and methods found on the WADA Prohibited List and are responsible for what is in their bodies at all times.
USADA is here to help athletes understand their responsibilities regarding prohibited substances and methods, providing numerous drug reference resources to make things as simple as possible for athletes and their support personnel.
