ADR: One of the world’s leading anti-doping research organizations.
Our Organization and it’s Mission.
Anti-Doping Research is at the forefront of performance-enhancing drug research organizations in the world. Our Mission is to get rid of illegal performance-enhancing drugs by uncovering new substances and developing tests to detect them. This non-profit organization is part grassroots campaign, part collaboration and part think tank. ADR was founded in 2005 by its CEO, Don Catlin, M.D., along with his son, Oliver Catlin,VP and CFO, along with other colleagues. Widely considered one of the fathers of drug testing in sports, Dr. Catlin founded the first anti-doping lab in the United States, the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory, and served as its director for 25 years. He has overseen drug screenings at every level of sport, including Olympic, professional and collegiate, and he and his team are responsible for pioneering many of the drug identification techniques currently used today.
