Each program has strengths in different academic areas. The Celiac Center at BIDMC has a deep clinical research portfolio. The Center for Celiac Research and Treatment at MGHfC is a world leader in basic research on celiac disease and intestinal permeability. The Celiac Disease Program at BCH is superb at educational initiatives. By combining our groups, the sum becomes much greater than the parts.
