As of January 1st, Dr. Rosa Ventura will be the new director of the Anti-Doping Control Laboratory at IMIM, replacing Dr. Jordi Segura who, after 30 years, is leaving the post to retire. However, until July 2016, Dr. Segura will remain at the Laboratory part-time supporting research and any other need that may arise.
Since 1985, when the Laboratory gained accreditation from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and later on from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Dr. Segura has been at the helm of the Laboratory, with a clear priority right from the start, that is to high quality and reliable services.
A Laboratory that has been in charge of controls for important sports events such as the Barcelona Olympics and Paralympics in 1992; the Pan American Games in Havana in 1991; in Mar de Plata in 1995 and Mexico 2011; The Asian Games in Bangkok in 1998, or the FINA World Swimming Championships held in Barcelona in 2003 and 2013, as some of the most relevant ones. The Lab also collaborated in anti-doping controls for the Olympics during the past 25 years.
