Faculty, staff, fellows and students are invited to a talk provided from Travis Craddock, PhD, Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychology & Neuroscience, Computer Science and Clinical Immunology at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He also 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 neuro-inflammation. His presentation will focus on re-purposing FDA approved drugs to treat other diseases. Specifically, Dr. Craddock will discuss drug re-purposing in the context of Gulf War Illness, a chronic multi-symptom disorder affecting up to one-third of the 700,000 returning veterans of the 1991 Persian Gulf War and for which there is no known treatment.
