FERNANDO G. CHIRDO. Facultad de Ciencias Exactas. Universidad Nacional de La Plata. LA PLATA, ARGENTINA

Fernando Chirdo studied biochemistry at the National University of La Plata, Argentine, from 1982 to 1988. In 1995 he obtained his PhD in Biochemistry working on the development of quantitative methods for gluten analysis and serological tests for coeliac disease diagnose. Since 2001, he is a member of the Scientific Researcher Career of National Council for Scientific Research and Technology (CONICET). In 2001/2002 he took up a research fellowship in University of Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland, at the laboratory of Prof. Allan Mowat, where he studied the regulatory function of dendritic cells from small intestine.
Since 2006, he is Professor of Immunology at Exact Sciences Faculty of National University of La Plata. His research is focused on the mechanisms of immune response and regulation at the intestinal mucosa in the context of coeliac disease pathogenesis and in animal models of enteropathy.

CONLETH FEIGHERY. Professor of Immunology - Department of Immunology. St. James's Hospital and Trinity College Dublin
DUBLIN, IRELAND

Conleth Feighery is Professor of Immunology (Emeritus) at Trinity College Dublin and Consultant Immunologist in St. James’s Hospital, Dublin. He qualified in medicine in University College Dublin in 1970 and as part of his training in Gastroenterology investigated immune mechanisms in auto-immune liver disease. In 1977/1978 he took up a research fellowship in Dallas, Texas and performed research in the field of transplantation immunology. Following his return to Dublin, he developed a specific interest in coeliac disease and continues to perform research in this field. He has additional interests in other immune mediated diseases and in primary immunodeficiency disorders. Particular topics of interest in coeliac disease include the investigation of auto-antibodies in disease diagnosis, the potential pathogenic role of these antibodies, examination of the cellular infiltrate in the histological lesion, studies of cytoskeletal molecules in enterocytes, the identification of cytokines involved in disease pathogenesis and the investigation of non-toxic cereals such as oats.

LUUD GILISSEN. Plant Research International (PRI) Wageningen University and Research Centre. WAGENINGEN, THE NETHERLANDS

Luud Gilissen studied biology at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands, from 1964 to 1971 and obtained in 1978 his PhD from the same university on fertilization aspects in Petunia hybrid, with focus on self-incompatibility and flower wilting. Then he moved to Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) where he was involved in plant cell biological and plant molecular research. In 1996 he started his own research on allergy caused by food and living environment. Currently, he is coordinator of allergy research at Plant Research International of WUR. He is founder of the Allergy Consortium Wageningen (2001) with research on allergy prevention and management. He was initiator of the EU-SAFE project (2001-2003) on fruit allergy where he was successful in the development of hypoallergenic apple (Santana). He co-founded the Celiac Disease Consortium (CDC) (2004), a large innovative public-private research project in which he leads the Food Genomics Cluster focussing on gluten genomics and proteomics and on the development of safe(r) wheat and a gluten-free oat chain. He also initiated ‘De Nederlandse Haverketen’, a public-private partnership aiming at the promotion of oat cultivation, consumption and research to improve health of the society, including the celiac population.

PETER KOEHLER. Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Lebensmittelchemie. FREISING, GERMANY

Peter Koehler studied food chemistry at the University of Stuttgart, Germany from 1982 to 1987. In 1992 he obtained his PhD from Technical University of Munich on disulfide bonds of wheat gluten. Since then he worked with the German Research Center for Food Chemistry in Freising, Germany. He is now vice director of the institute and is leading a group working on structure-function relationships of biopolymers. Since 1999 he has also been working as a professor for food chemistry at Technical University of Munich. His research is focused on basic as well as applied topics from cereal science. Typical examples are studies on celiac disease, in particular on the analysis of gluten in gluten-free foods, the production of gluten-free foods, structure and functional properties of wheat gluten and other cereal proteins as well as enzymes and emulsifiers in breadmaking.

KNUT LUNDIN. Oslo Universitetssykehus. OSLO, NORWAY

Knut E. A. Lundin studied Medicine at University of Oslo from 1980 to 1986. He did the work for his Dr. med. thesis in the laboratory of Erik Thorsby from 1986 to 1989 and defended the thesis in 1990. He started already in 1985 a close and longstanding collaboration with professor Ludvig M. Sollid. He started clinical training in 1993, and qualified as specialist of Internal medicine in 1999 and in Gastroenterology in 2000. He has since worked at the Oslo University Hospital Rikshospitalet, and holds a position as Senior consultant gastroenterologist at the Endoscopy Unit. Clinical expertise includes all aspects of GI endoscopy including ERCP, EUS, pediatric endoscopy, balloon enteroscopy etc., as well as celiac disease, wheat sensitivity, inflammatory bowel disease and a range of other clinical conditions seen at a thertiary referral hospital. He is currently associate professor and project leader for a new and revised curriculum for medical education at the University of Oslo. Main research interest focuses on T cell biology of celiac disease, and in recent years, also non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Most important scientific achievement was the demonstration of gluten-specific, intestinal T cells in celiac disease (Lundin et al. J Exp Med 1993). He has published a number of original papers, reviews and book chapters. Together with Ludvig Sollid he organized the 13th International Symposium on Celiac Disease that was held in Oslo in 2011.
