Dr. Grant is developer and principal investigator of the Parent-Child Assistance Program, an award-winning intervention model working with high-risk pregnant and parenting women with substance use disorders. The program serves over 1200 women and families in Washington State and has been replicated widely in the U.S. and Canada. Grant's research focuses on the teratogenic effects of prenatal exposure to drugs and alcohol, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, case management intervention with high-risk populations, and therapeutic strategies for women with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health problems. Dr. Grant is Seattle principal investigator of a multi-site NIH study surveying 500 individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders on health conditions, and assessing immune status and outcomes associated with health indicators.
