Our Mission is to Cure Celiac Disease

The University of Chicago Medicine is internationally recognized as the most comprehensive celiac center in the world. We provide expert diagnosis and treatment for both children and adults as well as extensive patient education and support. Our groundbreaking research and innovative programs are dedicated to finding a cure for celiac disease. As we work toward the cure, we're raising awareness and diagnosis rates through education and advocacy efforts.

Educating Our Patients

People with celiac disease often receive no instruction on the only medical intervention to treat their condition: strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life. As a result, newly diagnosed patients struggle to learn the diet on their own, often consuming gluten by mistake and delaying their recovery. The UChicago Medicine Celiac Disease Center is working to properly educate patients and medical professionals around the world.
