Drugs and Sports

PWR 1D - Summer 2016 - Instructor: Carpenter, Russ
The theme of this course is an exploration of the relationship between humans, drugs and sports. In this class we will examine a wide range of perspectives, from the biological mechanisms that underlie performance enhancement, the network of medical and black market systems that provide substances for elite athletes, to the systems in place for monitoring and policing individuals and the substances they consume. As the course theme is broadly defined, research topics will vary widely.

There is a growing buzz around the potential for science and technology to create significant "human enhancement" applications, such as bionic limbs, improved memory or cognition, or the ability to choose specific characteristics for our offspring. The possibilities stir the imagination and excitement of many, while for others the rhetoric and current research into human enhancement signals alarms of a new eugenics. And yet, for most non-scientists, this sounds like the realm of science fiction, a world awash in mystery and misunderstanding.
