About Michael Grant
I received my formal academic training (B.S. & Ph.D.) at The Pennsylvania State University. After earning my doctorate, I spent nine years at Boston University as a NRSA Post-Doctoral Fellow and Assistant Professor.
My research at BU included a longitudinal study of cognitive aging assessing identical and fraternal twin pairs called the Vietnam Era Twin Study of Aging (VETSA). My training as a behavior geneticist facilitated my academic interests in the nature and nurture of age-related outcomes.
Since arriving at Ohio University in 2013, I have enthusiastically taken on more of a teaching and administrative role. I currently teach courses focusing on: general psychology, behavior genetics, child and adolescent development, psychology of aging, and prenatal influences on child development.
I have also been a committee member on OHIO’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) since arriving at OHIO. The IRB governs the ethical conduct of human and animal research conducted here at the university.
Lastly, I serve as an undergraduate academic adviser and take great pride in helping our undergraduate student’s academic careers.
