Research Interests

; ; ; ;

Dr. Jacquelyn Cragg aims to be a world leader in neuro-analytics, helping to uncover innovative treatment strategies and therapies for people suffering from neurological diseases. She is working with statistical algorithms to better understand neurological diseases, including Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and SCI.

Dr. Jacquelyn Cragg is an Assistant Professor in UBC’s Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and a Principal Investigator at ICORD. She is leveraging clinical and population “big data” sources and machine-based learning to identify novel, reliable predictors of spinal cord injury progression. She also researches other neurological diseases beyond spinal cord injury, such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

As the sole North American recipient of L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women In Science International Rising Talent Prize for 2019, Dr. Cragg is a champion for encouraging women and girls to pursue careers in science.
