WATERLOO, Ont. (Friday, February 21, 2014) – Officials at the Winter Olympics in Sochi are expected to have performed nearly 2,500 drug tests in 17 days, and a new protocol developed by chemists at the University of Waterloo will revolutionize the current drug testing methods at major sporting events in the future.
A team of chemists from the Faculty of Science at Waterloo developed a fully automated method for analyzing urine. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) funded the research, which appears in a recent issue of Analytica Chimica Acta.
Congratulations to Dr. Juewen Liu who has won the Canadian Society for Chemistry 2014 Fred Beamish Award. This award is presented by the Chemical Institute of Canada Analytical Chemistry Division to an individual who demonstrates innovation in research in the field of analytical chemistry, where the research is anticipated to have significant potential for practical applications.
