Dr. Grant is a Biochemical Pharmacologist and Clinical Associate Professor at the Sydney Adventist Hospital Clinical School, University of Sydney and Head of the Australasian Research Institute. Dr Grant's research focusses on characterizing, at the molecular level, how lifestyle and environment (e.g. emotional stress, diet and exercise), produce changes in the body's biochemistry that lead toward either health or disease; including oxidative stress, inflammation and changes in NAD(H) metabolism. A practical goal of this research is identification of a profile of early subclinical disease markers enabling effective intervention before irreparable damage to tissue occurs precipitating a clinical crisis.

Recently, she has carried out in vitro assays in human muscle and adipose cells, which propose BRS-3 as a potential molecular target for diabetes and obesity. Beyond that, her future projects include the study of the influence of impaired glucose homeostasis in neuronal function. The treatment of peripheral and central pathology of Huntington disease could form the basis for a more effective therapeutic strategy, since the maintenance of a healthy nervous system, is closely linked to metabolic health. Research Interests includes Antidiabetic treatments,Type 2 diabetes and cancer,Molecular targets for obesity and diabetes,Diabetes and Obesity Care,Neurodegenerative diseases: Huntington disease (HD), Nutritional and Diet care in HD patients
