The Drug Control Centre at King's College London has an international reputation for its work in anti-doping control.

There are 30 accredited anti-doping laboratories in the world; the King's laboratory is the only one in the UK and carried out more than 12,000 tests across 80 sports during 2019.  The Drug Control Centre carried out the anti-doping tests for the UEFA Euros 2020 football tournament and of course the testing for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and is accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The Centre was originally set up in 1978 with the support of the Sports Council (and now the UK Anti-Doping Agency).
