Dr. Grant is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders, Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Division of Sleep Medicine, Harvard Medical School. Her doctoral work focused on the collection and analysis of new biomarkers to measure the internal timing of the human circadian pacemaker and predict performance impairment due to extended sleep loss, by examining genetic, endocrine and metabolic markers. Dr. Grant's current postdoctoral research examines the effects of sleep, the circadian system and light on cognitive performance, metabolic and endocrine outcomes.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
