K.G. Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre

The primary objective of our centre is to translate recent huge advances in the basic understanding of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease to the clinic – to improve disease diagnostics, to implement novel treatments and to identify new therapeutic targets for this common disease.

The secondary objective is to become a clinical research site at the international forefront which will provide optimal patient care and which will be a unique training site for basic scientists and clinicians.


  • Is regular gluten free diet sufficient to curb all anti-gluten immunity? Feb. 17, 2021 10:52 PM

    Proteomics analysis of intestinal tissue biopsies finds that some patients with celiac disease considered to be well treated by regular gluten free diet have ongoing low-level inflammation in the intestine suggestive of ongoing low-level anti-gluten immunity.
