Project Description

Celiac disease is an increasingly common immune-mediated disorder whose pathology is complex and not fully understood. The goal of this piece is to communicate what is currently known about the etiology and pathogenesis of celiac disease at the cellular, tissue, and organ/system levels. As disease presentation is heterogeneous and its progression variable, a particular emphasis has been placed on depiction of different pathological states of the affected tissue and organs, as opposed to changes in tissues and organs over time. This piece is intended for an educated lay audience and is designed as a two-page spread in a popular science magazine.
