Dr. Fasano leads a team of researchers across nine countries and enjoys research partnerships with institutions around the world. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers and he has received numerous awards for his translational science and other achievements. Dr. Fasano has been named 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.
In the year 2000 Dr. Fasano’s team discovered “zonulin,” the molecule which regulates intestinal permeability, also known as “leaky gut”, and their totally ground-breaking research has linked an overproduction of zonulin to the development of a series of autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes, celiac disease and multiple sclerosis.
