Travis Craddock, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of Psychology, Computer Science and Medicine applying systems biology and biophysics methods towards the purpose of identifying novel treatments for complex chronic illness involving neuro-inflammation. His postdoctoral work was conducted under the supervision of Gordon Broderick, Ph.D., in the Broderick Laboratory for Clinical Systems Biology in the Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. His work with Broderick focused on using a theory driven systems biology approach to investigate neuroendocrine-immune interaction dynamics in neuro-inflammation and its relation complex diseases such as Gulf War Illness, and chronic fatigue syndrome. This work was 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.
