Active Grants

An adoption study of the development of early substance use: the joint roles of genetic influences, prenatal risk, rearing environment, and pubertal maturation.

R01 DA045108 (PI: Neiderhiser)                                                                                         04/01/18-02/28/23


The proposed research will clarify how heritable risks and prenatal and postnatal environments work together with hormonal changes to influence the development of risk for early substance use (SU) and related problems in adolescence. My role is to lead the data core, overseeing data management, preparation, and analyses, as well as to assist in retention and recruitment of hard-to-reach families, and research dissemination.

The Early Growth and Development Study Pediatric Cohort

UH3 OD023389 (PI: Leve)                                                                                                          09/01/18-08/31/21

Office of the Director, NIH

This Pediatric Cohort of the Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) initiative leverages and builds upon a unique existing “dual-family” adoption design to isolate early environmental exposures from heritable influences on familial clustering of health problems to contribute to ECHO’s overall goal of investigating the role of early life exposures and underlying biological mechanisms in childhood health and disease.

Dr. Marceau is a consultant on this grant.
