Featured Presenter Alessio Fasano, MD
Professor, Director, Center for Celiac Research; Director, Mucosal Biology Research Center
World-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, research scientist, and entreprenuer Alessio Fasano, M.D., founded the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research (CFCR) in 1996. The CFCR offers state-of-the art research, teaching, and clinical expertise for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy, and gluten sensitivity. Dr. Fasano founded the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition and published the groundbreaking study in 2003 that established the rate of the autoimmune disorder at one in 133 Americans.


Professor of pediatrics, medicine and physiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, he also serves as director of the Mucosal Biology Research Center. His research focuses on mucosal biology of the gut and transcends the disciplines of microbiology, molecular and cell biology, and physiology.


Dr. Fasano has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers and has filed more than 160 patent applications. An elected member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation, he has received numerous awards for his translational science and other achievements. He has been named as one of America’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly for five consecutive years (2007-2011) and was a 2005 finalist for the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award. The Daily Record in Baltimore has named Fasano as an Influential Marylander in 2011, Innovator of the Year in 2005, and a Physician Health Care Hero in 2004.


In April 2010, Dr. Fasano was invited to speak at the Defeat Austism Now conference which was held in Baltimore on Autism and GI disorders. Later that year, he was asked to write a chapter for the book entitled Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism 2011-2012. The chapter is called Intestine, Leaky Gut, and Autism: Is it Real and how to fix it (including with Probiotics). In addition, Dr. Fasano and the Center for Celiac Research have been named in a research grant into the biological mechanisms of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) from Autism Speaks, based in New York.
