Coeliac disease is the only autoimmune disease that is caused by an external, environmental trigger - gluten. This not only makes it unique but is also the reason why it is sometimes referred to as "autoimmune-like". Join leading coeliac disease expert Dr Jason Tye-Din in learning why and how this protein can cause so much damage to the entire body in someone with coeliac disease.

Dr. Jason Tye-Din is a gastroenterologist who heads the Coeliac Research Group at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. Jason completed his medical degree at Melbourne University in 1995 and undertook clinical training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital specialising in gastroenterology. His research has focussed on understanding why dietary gluten is toxic to the immune system to enable better approaches to diagnose and manage coeliac disease. He chairs the Medical Advisory Committee of Coeliac Australia and is involved in medical professional education to improve the care of people with this common but often unrecognised and poorly managed illness.
