AOECS is committed to supporting research on coeliac disease and its associated condition dermatitis herpetiformis Duhring.

Research projects in the area of coeliac disease have increased significantly in the last ten years, largely thanks to the efforts of our larger and more established Member societies. Medical experts in the fields of gastroenterology, immunology and genetics have been funded to research various aspects of coeliac disease, such as:

  • less invasive diagnosis
  • treatment or cure
  • psychological and economic burden on coeliac patients
