PhD, freelance, anti-doping scientist
From 2010 to 2017 Christina Weber has been working for the Antidoping Switzerland Foundation as Head of Science. She was responsible for the Swiss Therapeutic Use Exemptions, Athlete Passport Management and the Swiss Drug Database.
In parallel (2013 to 2017), she completed a PhD on black market doping products under supervision of Prof. Dr. Mario Thevis from the German Sports University Cologne. The thesis was entitled „The availability of doping products in Switzerland“. This work covered three main areas: a descriptive investigation of seized doping products at the Swiss border, a survey among importers about their motivation for ordering doping products from abroad and an analysis of the pharmaceutical quality of the seized products.
Christina Weber is trained as a Swiss pharmacist with specialization in clinical pharmacy. She obtained her master of pharmacy in 2007 from the University of Geneva and her postgraduate diploma in clinical pharmacy in 2008 from the Valais Hospital.
Before working in the area of anti-doping, she has been working in Switzerland as a community pharmacist at Bahnhofapotheke Münsingen and as a clinical and hospital pharmacist at the Hirslanden Kliniken Bern, where she was the deputy head of the hospital pharmacy.
She recently moved to Den Haag, the Netherlands, where she works as a freelance anti-doping specialist.
