The Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases is at the forefront of chronic, infectious and inflammatory disease research at UCalgary's Cumming School of Medicine.
Our strategy is to advance patient care in chronic and infectious disease via personalized medicine and individual research projects. We focus on the development and analyses of:
1) Use of patient samples (through research at the Human Organoid Innovation Hub (HOIH))
2) Understanding the microbiome (through research at the International Microbiome Center (IMC))
3) Imaging immune-bacterial interaction (through research at the Live Cell Imaging Facility (LCI)).
By ensuring the patient is centre-stage in the Institute’s research agenda, we will make a difference in the lives of patients, translating success in discovery-based research to clinical application.
To achieve our goals we foster a research environment and culture where diverse faculty members, trainees and staff can excel and meet their potential to perform biomedical discovery and translational research.
In fulfilling our mission, the Snyder Institute seeks to be socially accountable by informing our stakeholders and the public about our research; consulting with and welcoming input from patient groups, our stakeholders and the public; and educating our trainees about the importance of research social accountability.
