Funding of Research

All of the Center’s research is directed toward celiac disease clinical, epidemiology, and mechanisms of pathogenesis of celiac disease, and patient and physician education.  Ranked #1 in the world for celiac disease research by, with more than 500 peer reviewed research publications, the Center has a core of researchers who are leading some of the most important science in the field, through studies that touch on immunology, epidemiology, neurological and psychiatric disorders, pediatric issues, and nutrition, among other areas. All of the Center’s research publications are available online at

With the shrinking government support of medical research and the absence of pharmaceutical research in celiac disease, the contributions of private philanthropy have made the difference in research for gluten-related disorders. It is only through research that medical advances are made.

Contributions to the Center have funded recruitment of new clinical and research faculty. This has enabled us to continue providing expert care to patients with gluten-related disorders and to maintain an impressive research output as documented in the list of publications on the Center’s website.  Our publications reflect the tremendous variety of research interest into gluten-related disorders.
