The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center participates in many clinical trials. We will post information regarding participation at our Center and for trials going on elsewhere as it becomes available.
If you have questions, please call our office at 773-702-7593.
See link below for current clinical trials:
Has Consumer Perception of GF Food Safety Changed Over Time?
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center has partnered with the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America on an exciting initiative to further our understanding of consumer perception of gluten free food safety. If you have 20 minutes to participate and have been diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance/gluten sensitivity, please complete this food safety survey. We hope to gain valuable information from this study that will identify education and purchasing behaviors within the gluten-free community that would be useful in advancing gluten-free products and dining, as well as identify education, training, and communication needs between and within the consumers and food manufacturing and food service industries.

Eating Behavior Study
Rutgers University - University of Chicago
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center has partnered with Virginia Quick, R.D., of Rutgers University, on a study to further our understanding of disturbed eating behavior in young adults, especially those with diet-related chronic health conditions such as Celiac Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Irritable Bowel Disease. If you have thirty minutes to participate and are between the ages of 18 to 25 years, please complete this eating behavior survey. You may be invited to complete a twenty minute follow-up survey, as well. We hope to gain valuable information from this study that will aid parents and healthcare providers in their efforts to help young adults develop and maintain a healthy concern for their overall wellbeing.

Drs. Guandalini, Semrad, and Kahn, along with the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center, have undertaken an initiative to create the nation's most comprehensive research database of information regarding celiac disease patients. Information on new and existing patients of the University of Chicago Medical Center will be gathered indefinitely to allow the research team to examine clinical, epidemiologic, and pathological features of our patient population. We are one of the leading celiac disease medical centers in the world and the studies using information gathered from this database will greatly contribute to our understanding of the disease. This will ultimately lead to an improvement in the nature and quality of care we can provide to patients, and empower us with useful tools to reach our ultimate goal of finding a cure for the disease.
In order to qualify for the Celiac Disease Database, you must be a patient at the University of Chicago Medical Center. If you would like to make an appointment for a consultation with one of our adult celiac disease specialists, please call (773) 702-6140 and request Dr. Carol Semrad or Dr. Sonia Kupfer. To make an appointment for a consultation with one of our pediatric celiac disease specialists, please call (773) 702-6169 and request Dr. Stefano Guandalini or Dr. Stacy Kahn.
