Free Webinar: Celiac Disease: Immunology 101 and the Drug Development Process

With their only treatment found in the grocery aisle and not behind the pharmacist's counter, celiac disease patients have relied upon delicious gluten-free recipes and cooking tips to navigate their medically necessary diet. As research continues to prove the need for a non-dietary therapy and scientists move closer to developing a pharmaceutical treatment, it is important for patients to learn more about the field of immunology, a critical piece to the celiac disease puzzle but one that is often left out of the patient education, as well as understand the basics about the drug development and approval process.

Join NFCA as Francisco Leon, MD, PhD, Vice President of Immunology Translational Medicine at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson and Johnson; and Ken Kilgore, MS, PhD, Director of ImmunoPharmacology in the Immunology Therapeutic Area at Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson and Johnson explain the basics of immunology and outline the drug development and approval process.

When:  Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Where:  Your computer

Time:  8:30 p.m. EDT/5:30 p.m. PDT
