Dr Maria Kavussanu
has been awarded a grant ($45,445) from the World Anti Doping Agency
(WADA) to conduct a two-year project entitled "A cross-cultural approach to a cross-cultural issue: Psychosocial factors and doping in young athletes". The project is a collaborative venture between University of Birmingham, University of Copenhagen, and University of Thessaly, and draws from social cognitive theories of motivation and morality to examine doping intentions in football players.
