Area of Expertise: Dr. Delany’s laboratory is interested in the differentiation of osteoblasts, which are the cells responsible for bone formation. She is studying bone remodeling, with a focus on the post-transcriptional mechanisms regulating the growth factors and matrix molecules important for maintaining bone mass. Her most recent work is centered on how microRNAs (small non-coding RNAs) regulate the gene expression networks modulating osteoblast and osteoclast differentiation. Dr. Delany also studies how 3' UTR single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) may modulate gene expression.
