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.

    Through a massive, international collaborative effort, the entire genome of bread wheat has now been mapped. This makes it possible to in the future develop wheat strains that lack certain proteins, including the gluten proteins that are harmful for celiac disease patients.
