Pam King, our director of development, joined the Institute in September 2015. She is an experienced, senior development professional who has helped to raise tens of millions of dollars to support programs and research for celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.

Prior to joining the Institute, Pam spent 20 years at the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research as the director of operations and development. Her background includes major gifts, special events, marketing, public relations, project planning and management, board development, corporate sponsorships, and collaborating with volunteer leadership.

Working with Alessio Fasano, MD, the Center for Celiac Research was created from an ambitious idea in the early 1990’s to become an internationally known, multi-disciplinary program for adults and children, covering clinical care, support services, education, and scientific research for celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.

Nationally, Pam built the Making Tracks for Celiacs Walk/Runs in an effort to increase the awareness of celiac disease (which was thought to be non-existent in the U.S. until 2003) and raised millions of dollars for research and local and national programs. Pam worked closely with the local and national support groups for the walk/runs and other fundraising initiatives as well as research projects.

Pam attended Towson University and Goucher College’s Fund Raising Management Program.
