Delany’s research focuses on avian telomere biology, using the chicken as the primary study organism. Her projects address Marek’s disease virus, a DNA herpesvirus, which induces a lethal T-cell lymphoma in chickens. The disease is of enormous significance in the poultry industry, but also serves as an important model for human herpesvirus infections and associated conditions.

Delany also is involved in gene mapping and genome organization of the chicken and turkey, mapping and gene analysis of limb and craniofacial malformations, and the conservation of poultry and avian genetic resources for researchers.
