The Celiac Disease Foundation is committed to driving diagnosis, treatments, and a cure for celiac disease. Funding research at renowned institutions is critical to fulfilling this mission. In 2016, the Foundation created the Young Investigator Research Grant Award with the North American Society for the Study of Celiac Disease (NASSCD). Because of the acute lack of funding from NIH and other grant sources for celiac disease research relative to other autoimmune and digestive diseases, young researchers were gravitating toward diseases with greater opportunity for funding and advancement. We created this award with the intention of keeping some of the best and brightest researchers focused on finding treatments and a cure for celiac disease. Today, in addition to supporting junior investigators, we fund investigator-initiated research, including basic, translational, and clinical research to accelerate the science toward our vision of a world free from celiac disease.

Support Celiac Disease Foundation Research Grants

Celiac Disease Foundation Research Grant Awards rely entirely on generous, tax-deductible contributions from concerned donors like you. We are making steady progress on multiple fronts in fighting celiac disease, but we cannot pause until effective FDA-approved treatments and plentiful safe food products are available to our patient community, and until there is a cure. Help us create a future without celiac disease.
