Jocelyn Silvester, HMS assistant professor of pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital, has received the inaugural Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) Young Investigator Prize. The prize recognizes the exceptional achievements of an investigator in the early part of their career in celiac disease research.

Silvester was recognized for her advocacy, translational research, and clinical research in both adults and pediatrics. Her research has provided insight into the natural history of celiac disease as well as providing a template for how to study the gluten-free diet. She has also developed a short, easy-to-administer way for the celiac disease community to assess adherence to the gluten-free diet.
