Dr. Nikos Ntoumanis has recently received a grant from the World Anti-Doping Agency to carry out a statistical synthesis (meta-analysis) of the literature on personal and situational psychosocial variables that predict doping use in physical activity settings. It is hoped that findings of this meta-analysis will serve as reference points for future research that aims to design interventions to reduce doping in physical activity.

From a practical perspective the findings of the meta-analysis can inform the development of more efficient and evidence-based campaigns and educational programmess that prevent or stop doping in physical activity settings.
