Gregory D. Cramer, DC, PhD
Dean, Department of Research
Professor, Research and Basic Sciences
After graduating from National in 1979, Dr. Gregory Cramer practiced chiropractic medicine for five years with his father (David M. Cramer, DC, Lincoln Chiropractic College, 1954), before pursuing a career in research and teaching.
After receiving his PhD, he began teaching and conducting research at NUHS, where he is currently professor and dean of research, and professor of anatomy. He is particularly interested in both human and animal research designed to determine the mechanisms of action of chiropractic adjusting, and has worked on projects related to these goals–including over 25 externally-funded projects and over 10 NIH-funded.
In 2005 he was honored by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) with its Researcher of the Year Award. He has published over 150 abstracts, papers, and book chapters. He is co-author (with Dr. Sue Darby) of the text entitled, Basic and Clinical Anatomy of the Spine, Spinal Cord, and ANS, the third edition of which was published in 2013.
