Alan Grant is a world renowned Paleontolgist whose career is most notable for his participation in the Jurassic Park Incident. He was the Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of Hills and then later the Museum of the Rockies at Montana State University. His experiences at Jurassic Park led to him being coerced into the Isla Sorna Rescue Mission in 2001.
Though initially reluctant, both Grant and Sattler's position changed after Hammond offered to continue funding their research for a further three years.
The Jurassic Park Incident
The pair travelled down to Costa Rica with Hammond, meeting Donald Gennaro and his expert Ian Malcolm before boarding the InGen Construction Helicopter to Isla Nublar. Grant showed distaste towards Malcolm's flirtatious attitude towards Sattler. Arriving over the island the helicopter became turbulent, which Hammond explained as the island's bad wind sheers. The group all fastened their seatbelts with the exception of Grant who had grabbed two female clasps.
