Welcome to the DeLuca Lab

We combine genetics, microscopy, biochemistry, and genomics, to understand how cells regulate gene expression during development to carry out hundreds of specialized functions at the right place and time. Click to learn more about our research and read some of our publications.

We are part of the MCB program at Montana State University in Bozeman.  We’re located on the second floor of Cooley Laboratory.

Our science serves the entire world and we are dedicated to making it openly available and quickly accessible through preprints and open access publishing. We are also passionately devoted to training the next generation of scientists. We strive to create a more equitable, healthy, and productive society by fostering and encouraging contributions from young scientists from diverse backgrounds.  

We’re currently recruiting researchers at all levels. Please contact Steve if you’re interested in joining the team.
