  1. U01DA055353 (GRANT, PATRICIA ELLEN) Sep 30, 2021 - Jun 30, 2026
    5/24 Healthy Brain and Child Development National Consortium
    Role Description: Various adverse and protective environments may affect child development. The Healthy Brain and Child Development National Consortium (HBCD-NC) will follow 7,500 mothers and their children from 24 locations across the U.S. from before birth to 10 years of age to better understand which harmful and protective environments exert the greatest impact on child development. This study will help to improve the health and development of children across the nation.
    Role: Co-Investigator
  2. R01DA050700 (MASSEY, SUENA HUANG) Mar 1, 2021 - Nov 30, 2025
    Elucidating Mechanisms of Pregnancy's Protective Effect on Drug Abuse Using Integrated Data Analysis
    Role Description: This study examines the precise timing, nature, and modifiable determinants of spontaneous change in cigarette smoking during pregnancy to identify novel mechanisms that disrupt addictive processes. To overcome methodologic limitations of prior studies, we conduct within-person, within-pregnancy, and between- pregnancy analyses of existing quantitative and qualitative data derived from multiple longitudinal prenatal tobacco exposure cohorts.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. R34DA050266 (WAKSCHLAG, LAUREN S) Sep 30, 2019 - Mar 31, 2021
    2/2 Optimizing access, engagement and assessment to elucidate prenatal influences on neurodevelopment: The Brains Begin Before Birth(B4 ) Midwest Consortium
    Role Description: The multidisciplinary Brains Begin Before Birth (B4) Midwest Consortium brings together unique, complementary expertise from bioethicists, neuroscientists, population health, exposure, clinical and developmental scientists from Washington University and Northwestern University to investigate this critical issue. Using innovative methods and strategies, we generate best practices recommendations for addressing the key legal/ethical, recruitment/retention and assessment challenges to conducting a large, national multi-site study characterizing the impact of early life exposure on brain and behavioral development across childhood.
    Role: Co-Investigator
  4. NMH-09012017 (MASSEY, SUENA HUANG) Sep 1, 2017 - Aug 31, 2018
    Dixon Family Foundation
    Role Description: The implications of recent changes in policy, potency, and public perceptions of cannabis in the United States remain to be fully elucidated. we estimate the unique effect of prenatal cannabis exposure on two well-established obstetric biomarkers of neurodevelopmental risk—infant weight at birth and gestational age at delivery — independent of other drug exposures and known sociodemographic confounders. To accelerate progress, we employ integrated analysis of existing data from three independent NIDA-funded longitudinal prenatal exposure cohorts contributed by a team of leading developmental scientists.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  5. K23DA037913 (MASSEY, SUENA HUANG) Jul 1, 2015 - Jun 30, 2021
    Cognitive-Affective Substrates of Smoking: Targets for Maternal Behavior Change
    Role Description: This study examines directly observed processes related to sensitive caregiving in relation biomarker-verified smoking behavior during pregnancy using extant data (Aim 1); and a new pilot study (Aim 2). Laying the groundwork for her mechanistic program of research, the PI receives mentored training in the multi-level measurement of behavioral and biological substrates of caregiving.
    Role: Principal Investigator

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.
