ALBANY, N.Y. (December 14, 2007) -- Former Senator George Mitchell unveils his long-awaited report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball today, which could name as many as 80 former and current major leaguers. University at Albany faculty experts discuss steroid abuse among professional athletes and offer insight into how the "steroid era" will affect the game of baseball and public perceptions.

  • UAlbany Psychology professor Bruce Svare has specialized for more than thirty years in the study of anabolic steroids, has authored over 70 scientific papers in leading professional journals and has written numerous books and book chapters in the field of behavioral neuroscience. He served on the National Institute on Drug Abuse Technical Review Panel on Steroid Abuse. He has lectured nationally and internationally on the topic of anabolic steroid abuse.
  • UAlbany lecturer Rob Edelman has authored books, including Great Baseball Films (Citadel Press, 1994) and Baseball on the Web (MIS: Press, 1998).
