Morgan Craig is Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the Université de Montréal and a Researcher at the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUSJ) in the Immune Disorders and Cancer group. Morgan Craig’s expertise is in quantitative medicine, a discipline integrating computational biology, (patho) physiology, and pharmaceutical sciences with traditional wet-lab and clinical biomedical approaches. The principal objective of her research is to tailor therapeutic interventions using mathematical modelling as complementary means to uncover the mechanisms that underlie healthy and pathological states and the dynamical evolution from one state to the other. She has previously developed predictive models in a variety of cancer applications that have been leveraged to tailor immunotherapies and reduce toxic side effects. A specific focus of her research is understanding hematopoietic crosstalk and resulting innate immune response.
Morgan Craig and her team, including in particular, the postdoctoral fellow Adrianne Jenner and student Sofia Alfonso, are focused on understanding differential immune responses in COVID-19 through multiscale mathematical models of the systemic immune response and localized infection dynamics in tissues. This work is carried out in collaboration with experimentalists and clinicians at CRCHUSJ and the SARS-CoV-2 Tissue Simulation Coalition (http://physicell.org/covid19/).
