FT Science with Clive Cookson
  • Doping in sports Jul 06, 2010 - 7:01 pm
  • In this week's podcast: We discuss the significance of the deal signed today between the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturer & Associations. We speak to David Howman, director general of WADA about the deal and the state of doping in sports today. We also get a personal view from olympic swimmer Karen Pickering about what it's like competing with people who have tested positive. And Clive joins us from the Euroscience Open Forum in Turin - we hear his interview with a Nobel prize winner for Chemistry, Kurt Wűtrich, about blood doping and sport.

    In the studio: Diana Garnham from the Science Council and Paul Levy, the principle analyst at the Drug Control Centre at Kings College in London.

    Presented by Andrew Jack with Clive Cookson live from Turin.
