Help us with our research

We are the largest single funder of research into coeliac disease in the UK, and your support can make all the difference. Coeliac UK is the only database of people with coeliac disease as there is no NHS register of those with the condition, so our members are essential in supporting research. 

Get involved

Researchers often need information from people with coeliac disease and their families to help them understand the condition better.
You can have an active and important role in research through activities like:

  • completing a survey from home, either online or by post
  • completion of a survey away from home, for example, in a supermarket
  • focus group
  • one to one interview, face to face or over the phone
  • gluten free food trial
  • trials for new treatments
  • providing a biological sample, for example, blood, urine, saliva, faeces.

Current projects recruiting for research

Research Projects: No biopsy diagnosis of coeliac disease  

Coeliac UK is working with various research teams around the UK on research projects relating to coeliac disease. It is important that there is patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) throughout these projects to ensure that the research remains relevant to its intended beneficiaries.    

We are currently recruiting for volunteers to participate in projects relating to the no biopsy diagnosis of coeliac disease for adults.
