Located in downtown Boston, the Center for Celiac Research provides comprehensive clinical care and long-term support for adults and children who suffer from celiac disease. Celiac disease, a genetically based-autoimmune disease, affects 1 out of every 133 people in the United States.
Led by Dr. Alessio Fasano, the Center for Celiac Research includes a multidisciplinary team of gastroenterologists, pediatricians, dieticians and nurses who work together to develop individualized treatment plans for people with celiac disease.
Celiac patients and their families also receive life-style counseling and dietary support to help them avoid foods containing gluten.
