Research Conference 2018 - Coeliac disease past, present, future; a spectrum of gluten related conditions
Our Research Conference 2018, entitled ‘Coeliac disease past, present, future; a spectrum of gluten related conditions' was held on 15 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.
We once again had a call for abstracts with a £500 prize for the best poster. The winning poster ‘Biopsy avoidance strategy in adult coeliac disease' was submitted by Lauren Marks, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield. The highly commended award went to the poster 'Is there a role for a gluten free diet in lifestylers?' presented by Anupam Rej. The winning poster, along with all those presented at the conference can be viewed within the photo gallery of posters and the abstracts can be found within the delegates' brochure.
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. videos will be uploaded to the website soon.
