Core Resources

Over the past several years, the Snyder Institute has invested heavily on a variety of core infrastructure. This core infrastructure features initiatives that enable both basic and clinical research at the Snyder Institute and is key to our success and scientific excellence.

To learn more about our cores:

The Calvin, Phoebe and Joan Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases was named in 2008 in honour of Joan Snyder and her parents, who she credits for teaching her the value of philanthropy. It is a group of more than 104 clinicians, clinician-scientists and basic scientists who are impacting and changing the lives of people suffering from chronic diseases, including sepsis, MRSA, cystic fibrosis, type-1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
