Current research

  • Coeliac UK is the largest single funder of research into coeliac disease in the UK
  • Since 2005 we have contributed around £2 million to research to understand the genetic basis and immune processes involved in the disease as well as laying the foundations for a potential vaccine
  • We have also commissioned other research such as preventing cross contamination in commercial kitchens
  • Our Members represent the largest single pool of patients with coeliac disease in the world which is why so many researchers want to work with us.

Why research is important

Research underpins the work of the Charity in so many different ways. Traditional medical research can offer different approaches to managing the disease and perhaps one day find a cure. But we also need research to base our expertise on in training and standards for producing gluten-free food and to inform our policy positions such as minimum standards for care.

You can help us make a difference by getting involved in our research.
