February 27, 2012 — Parker University presented The Drugless Research Hall of Fame Award to the fourth inductee, Dr. Gregory Cramer, professor and dean of research and professor of anatomy at National University of Health Sciences.
The award was presented during Parker’s Starlight Soirée, an event held during Parker Seminars Las Vegas to raise proceeds for chiropractic research.
The Drugless Research Hall of Fame is an innovative recognition platform designed by Parker University to showcase significant drug-free contributions in research worldwide. Previous inductees include Dr. Ron Rupert, Dr. Cheryl Hawk, and Dr. Arlan W. Fuhr.
Cramer was honored with the award for his dedication to chiropractic research and pursuit of excellence as a chiropractor to impact the health care of the world without drugs.
“I’ve known Dr. Cramer and his published works for over 20 years and he’s one of the unsung research heroes of the profession,” said Dr. Ronald Rupert, dean of research, Parker Research Institute. “He’s truly one of the great researcher’s in our industry and one that works tirelessly to further chiropractic.”
After graduating from National University of Health Sciences (NUHS), Cramer practiced for five years with his father before pursuing a career in research and teaching.
After receiving his PhD, he began teaching and conducting research at NUHS. He is particularly interested in both human and animal research designed to determine the mechanisms of action of chiropractic adjusting, and has worked on many Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded projects related to these goals.
Cramer is widely acknowledged for his research. In 2005, he was honored by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) with its Researcher of the Year Award. He has published over 100 abstracts, papers, and book chapters. He is co-author of the text entitled, “Basic and Clinical Anatomy of the Spine, Spinal Cord, and ANS,” the second edition of which was published in 2005.
