Dr Jules Heuberger has successfully defended his PhD thesis

For his PhD thesis, Dr Jules Heuberger did research at CHDR on the subject 'The clinical pharmacology of performance enhancement and doping detection in sports'. From his research, Jules concluded that for most of the substances prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) there is no evidence of performance enhancement. Considering doping has become an important issue in the sports world, Jules' research received a lot of attention, both positive and negative. And although Jules realises the WADA code will not be discarded from one day to the other, he hopes that his dissertation will bring about more research on the effect of doping, to eventually make the doping list shorter and more effective.
