The Celiac Disease Center was established within the Department of Medicine at Columbia University in 2001. Its mission: to redefine the future of celiac disease and its treatment, through continuing advances in biomedical research, patient care, and physician and public education. Under the guidance of Peter Green, MD, one of two recognized experts on celiac disease in the United States, the Center has become world-renowned for its services and programs. It is the only medical school supported center in the United States that provides comprehensive medical care, including nutrition counseling, for adult and pediatric patients with celiac disease. ALL of the Center’s research and programs pertain exclusively to celiac disease -- clinical epidemiology, and mechanisms of celiac disease -- as well patient and physician education. Last year the Center diagnosed and treated 2000 patients from around the world, 40% of which were new patients.
