How we're making a difference in celiac disease

Like nowhere else, our expert scientists and physicians are improving the lives of people affected by celiac disease.

We are built on this same bedrock of discovery and innovation—advancing groundbreaking research and patient care, transforming peoples’ lives, and educating the next generation of leaders in science and medicine.

With your support we are:

Developing new treatments for children and adults beyond the gluten-free diet

Protecting children at risk for celiac by uncovering triggers for the disease
Improving patients’ wellbeing by understanding how gluten affects neurological function
Advocating for people with celiac disease through improved food labeling and celiac-friendly restaurants

Your support can make a difference for children and adults living with celiac disease

Philanthropic funding is the driver that allows us to explore innovative ideas and opens the pathway for new research directions.
