NCA and the Celiac Research Program at Harvard Medical School continue to host monthly 75-minute virtual meetings. Speakers present on selected topics for 60 minutes followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer period.  All meetings begin at 1 pm Eastern Time.

On March 25th, Get the Facts on COVID-19 Vaccines and Celiac Disease. Addressing the COVID-19 pandemic requires understanding variations in the human immune system, how different groups are affected by the virus, and how we can leverage science to develop targeted vaccines to protect us. Dr. Ofer Levy, director of the Precisions Vaccine Program in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Boston Children’s Hospital and Dr. Lael Yonker, pediatric pulmonologist and co-founder of the Pediatric COVID-19 Biorepository at Massachusetts General Hospital, will lead the discussion to help attendees understand what is known about the COVID-19 virus today and how new developments will help to contain community spread of the virus.
