This conference is dedicated to exchanging knowledge and ideas which are most important to maintaining the integrity of animal racing through making scientific recommendations to racing authorities and proposing new technologies that can help in the field of dope testing and veterinary treatment.
The event included interesting presentations of the topic, fruitful meetings as well as round table discussions.
Through their participation in the ICRAV, ADLQ emphasized the importance of developing a closer relationship between the antidoping technology of human sports, driven by the World Antidoping Agency – WADA and the antidoping of animal sports, driven by AORC.
Dr. Muhammad Alsayrafi , General manager of Anti-Doping Laboratory Qatar, has commented on their participation : ( ADLQ is one of the very few antidoping laboratories in the world that covers both technologies: the human antidoping and the animal antidoping. We , in ADLQ ,will undertake in the near future initiatives on an international level towards exchanging analytical information and data between scientists of human and animal anti-doping fields).
