The Calvin, Phoebe and Joan Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases

The Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases is a research facility at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine focused on advancing modern medicine’s capacity to ease the burden of chronic and infectious disease. Our 480 highly qualified researchers, clinicians and trainees use our world-class research facilities and technologies to make ground-breaking discoveries leading to disease prevention, new treatments and ultimately cures for these conditions. We believe there are undiscovered pathways to precise medical applications we call Precision Medicine – tailored medical approaches – which will improve the quality of life for millions of people. Investments in our Institute will spark meaningful discoveries and ensure that this vital research continues.
