In this presentation, Dr. Scott Stanley from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis discusses the ever changing and dynamic field of science of equine anti-doping. The constant introduction of new drugs and biopharmaceuticals present challenges to the integrity of sports. Anti-doping programs are continually falling under fire due to allegations of perceived doping by athletes with drugs that are rumored to be undetectable by the current testing schemes which in some cases offer limited drug coverage. He will also detail the advancements of modern mass spectrometry, specifically, the Orbitrap MS that have enabled anti-doping laboratories to significantly expand the drug coverage for both human and equine athletes.
Dr. Scott Stanley is a Professor of at the University of California–Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. He is the Principal Chemist at the Kenneth L. Maddy Equine Analytical Chemistry Laboratory, California’s Official Drug Testing Laboratory for all racing horse events.
He has published over 115 research papers on equine anti-doping methods, veterinary pharmacokinetics, toxicology and veterinary drug compounding. He maintains an active analytical chemistry research laboratory involved in the steroid profiling methods, and investigation of veterinary drugs produced by veterinary compounding pharmacies. Since opening in 2000, the K.L. Maddy Laboratory has established itself as one of the largest and most respected Anti-Doping and Equine Pharmacology Research programs.
