"We will complete [the laboratory] three weeks later, it will be commissioned in June. At this time I will submit a request to [WADA Director General Olivier] Niggli with a request for discussing this issue [future head of the laboratory]," Sadovnichy said.
The MSU rector said that the WADA may recommend a candidate for the head of the Russian laboratory.
The establishment of the MSU anti-doping laboratory was announced by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in summer, while in December the Russian State Duma adopted a law on creating the laboratory.
The Russian anti-doping system is being reformed amid the scandal over the alleged state-run doping program in the country, which resulted in a number of sanctions against Russian officials and athletes.
Russian officials have refuted the allegations of the state-run doping program, while admitting that Russian sports had some issues with doping abuse.
