Looking for ground-breaking science? On behalf of our entire research team, welcome to the inaugural issue of the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment  Newsletter.

Our patients who receive care at the Center for Celiac Research and Treatment are invaluable to the success of our research. We look forward to keeping you informed and excited about our ongoing research initiatives so that YOU too can have a hand in improving the diagnostic, treatment and preventive, approaches for gluten-related disorders.

The research team at our center is composed of doctors, scientists, laboratory technicians and study coordinators who work collaboratively to ensure successful research. From the initial enrollment of patients in our clinic to the completion of advanced analyses of the microbial communities colonizing the gut, each member of our research team brings a distinct skill-set and expertise.

Gluten-free Diet May Not Heal Intestinal Damage for All Children with Celiac Disease

Study of children with celiac disease who adhered to the gluten-free diet for at least one year describes frequency of intestinal healing. Learn more.

Investigating the Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet

All patients seen at our clinic are offered participation in our Celiac Disease Research Registry, which allows us to review and extract de-identified information from medical records for research—our team uses this information to learn more about trends in the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of gluten-related disorders. Learn more.

Babies Could Hold the Key to Personalized Prevention of Celiac Disease

We are still recruiting precious GEMMs for the CDGEMM Study! Children aged 6 months or younger who have a parent or sibling diagnosed with celiac disease are eligible to participate. Be sure to visit our website (www.CDGEMM.org) for more information about the study.
