The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University has established itself as a leader in the field, both nationally and internationally, by providing the highest quality, compassionate patient care for children and adults with celiac disease. Our strengths in research and treatment are enhanced by our location within Columbia University Medical Center, which as a leading medical institution in New York City provides fertile ground for innovative research and translational studies across a variety of divisions, departments, centers, and institutes. As a center in the Department of Medicine at Columbia University, we are able to take advantage of many opportunities for interdisciplinary patient care and research. All of the Center’s research is directed toward celiac disease and reflects the nature of celiac disease as a multisystem disorder. Clinical research at the Center has led to studies on adults and children that describe the clinical face of celiac disease in the United States. The many research and review publications emanating from the Center are available in the research section. These activities, combined with successful treatment outcomes for our patients, have enabled the Celiac Disease Center to greatly impact the rate of diagnosis and awareness among physicians in the United States. We think advocacy in the medical community is one of the most effective ways to increase the profile and knowledge base of celiac disease to healthcare professionals. As the rate of diagnosis increases, the visibility of celiac disease will continue to grow, with physicians considering the diagnoses in greater numbers, resulting in better services for those with the disease and a markedly improved quality of life for these patients.
