Travis J.A. Craddock, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychology & Neuroscience, Computer Science and Clinical Immunology at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He serves as the Director of the Clinical Systems Biology Group at NSU’s Institute of Neuro-Immune medicine where he applies computational systems biology and biophysics methods towards the purpose of identifying novel treatments for complex chronic illness involving neuroinflammation. Dr. Craddock received his Ph.D. in the field of biophysics at the University of Alberta where his graduate research activities focused on subneural biomolecular information processing, and nanoscale neuroscience descriptions of memory, consciousness and cognitive dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders. His current research activities are focused on using a theory driven approach to understand the underlying molecular regulation of chronic illness resulting from exposure to neurotoxins, such as anesthesia and nerve agents, in order to improve diagnosis and putative treatment strategies. This work is primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. Craddock contributed the book chapter "The “Quantum Underground”: Where Life and Consciousness Originate" to Biophysics Of Consciousness: A Foundational Approach (2016). Craddock's most recent publication is “Anesthetic Alterations of Collective Terahertz Oscillations in Tubulin Correlate with Clinical Potency: Implications for Anesthetic Action and Post-Operative Cognitive Dysfunction.”
Prior to receiving his doctoral degree, Dr. Craddock’s graduate research activities focused on sub-neural biomolecular information processing, and nanoscale neuroscience descriptions of memory, consciousness and cognitive dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
