Research Conference 2017 - The gluten free diet; classic coeliac disease and more
Our Research Conference 2017, entitled ‘The gluten free diet; classic coeliac disease and more’ was held on 24 March at the Royal College of Physicians, London. Leading researchers in coeliac disease and the gluten free diet were invited from around the world to bring the very latest developments to healthcare professionals and researchers in the UK.
It was our third year where we had a call for abstracts with a £500 prize for the best poster. Entry numbers were up 50% on last year and the winning abstract, ‘Quality standards in coeliac disease: a retrospective evaluation in a single specialist clinic’ was submitted by Dr Michael FitzPatrick, University of Oxford. Dr Fitzpatrick will use his prize money to attend an international conference. The winning abstract, along with all those presented at the conference can be viewed within the delegates' brochure and the photo gallery of posters.
We filmed the event to extend its reach to healthcare professionals and researchers who were unsuccessful in securing a place at the conference and for our members who also like to be kept informed of research into coeliac disease and the gluten free diet.
