(June 1, 2017) XCellAssay has been awarded a research grant from the Partnership for Clean Competition for the project "Androgen monitoring of amateur and youth athletes". This award represents the next stage following the completion of a prior grant "Detection of novel androgenic anabolic activities in urine and serum with a highly sensitive, cost-efficient Androgen Receptor BioAssay" awarded to XCellAssay co-founder Dr. Fred Schaufele for studies conducted at the University of California San Francisco.

Founded in 2008 by the US Olympic Committee, the US Anti-Doping Agency, the National Football League and Major League Baseball, the Partnership for Clean Competition is the premier anti-doping research collaborative that works to protect the integrity of sport and public health by engaging and supporting the world’s top scientists and innovators in high-quality anti-doping research and development. XCellAssay is honored to receive this award for our research related to the Partnership for Clean Competition's mission of detecting and deterring the use of performance enhancing substances by all athletes in all sports at all levels.
