Dr. Miguel del Campo is a medical geneticist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an associate professor at UC San Diego.

After graduating from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain, Dr. del Campo went on to complete additional training at the Hospital Universitario La Paz and the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. He followed this training with a fellowship in genetics and dysmorphology at the University of California San Diego, a Ph.D. in pediatrics from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, and postdoctoral training at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

Dr. del Campo cares for patients with dysmorphologic, genetic, and teratologic conditions and his current research interests include: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), limb defects and HOX signaling pathways, Williams syndrome, autism, prenatal diagnosis through comparative genomic hybridization, and Marfan syndrome and other connective tissue disorders. Additionally, he actively participates in various national and international organization as well as support groups for parents with children with genetic disorders and FAS disorders.

Dr. del Campo is fluent in Spanish, Catalan, English and French, as well as proficient in Italian and Portuguese.
