Research in the Delaney laboratory aims to understand the biological consequences of DNA damage. Using the methods and tools of biochemistry, biophysics, synthetic chemistry, molecular biology, and toxicology we probe the effects of DNA damage from the molecular to the cellular level. We exploit our abilities to synthesize modified DNA nucleobases and study their properties within well-defined systems. We are particularly interested in oxidative DNA damage and its contributions to cancer and neurological disorders such as Huntington’s disease.
