The Snyder Institute for Chronic Diseases is committed to provide excellence in training in biomedical and translational research in autoimmune, inflammatory, immunological and infectious disorders at the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels.  In addition, there are Institute-wide educational and professional development activities to support and promote our trainees. 

 A number of interdisciplinary graduate degree programs offered under the auspices of the Faculty of Graduate Studies are affiliated with the Snyder Institute. Students can also register in a graduate degree program while concurrently registered in the MD program through the Leaders in Medicine (LIM) program at the Faculty of Medicine.

As part of its mandate to train the next generation of research leaders, the Snyder Institute is proud to administer the Beverley Phillips Rising Stars Program for Graduate Scholarships and Postdoctoral Fellowships. This program is made possible by a generous donation of Mr. Gordon & Mrs. Beverley Phillips in 2014.

The Institute is also pleased to administer the The Paul Kubes Trainee Award of Excellence for Snyder Institute PhD and MSc trainees. This award was created through philanthropic donations with the intention of supporting the success and careers of emerging infectious disease and chronic disease researchers.
