Biography

John H. Hannigan, Ph.D. is Professor of Obstetrics and Professor of Psychology and also teaches in the graduate programs in Reproductive Sciences (Physiology & ObGyn) and Behavioral & Cognitive Neuroscience (Psychology).  He is also a member of the Translational Neuroscience Program and the Center for Urban Responses to Environmental Stressors (CURES). 

Dr. Hannigan’s research examines the life-long biobehavioral impact of prenatal exposures to alcohol, cocaine, and other drugs (esp., toluene), as well as the environmental factors affecting developmental outcomes and treatment after prenatal exposures.  Current research is studying the use of alcohol screens by clinicians serving pregnant women.

Dr. Hannigan was graduated from Fairfield University (1975) and Binghamton University - State University of New York (1983) with degrees in psychology and physiological psychology.  After postdoctoral training at what is now named the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center at UCLA, Dr. Hannigan became Assistant Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York – Albany in 1984 where he was also a member of the Center for Behavioral Teratology.  He joined the C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth & Development and the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Wayne State University in 1990, and came to the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute in 2008.  Dr. Hannigan served as the MPSI Deputy Director and Graduate Training Director until 2015.
