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.
