Bio

Dr. Lynne Bird is a dysmorphologist and clinical geneticist at Rady Children's, and a professor of clinical pediatrics at UC San Diego. She is medical director of Rady Children's multidisciplinary Prader-Willi Syndrome Clinic and co-founder and medical administrator of Rady Children's Down Syndrome Center.

In her practice, she evaluates children with birth defects or those who are suspected of having a genetic problem or syndrome.

Graduating summa cum laude from Bucknell University, Dr. Bird went on to attend the Duke University of School of Medicine. Upon completing a pediatric residency and genetics fellowship at UC San Diego and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, she joined the UC San Diego faculty.

Dr. Byrd was elected to the Academy of Clinician Scholars at UC San Diego in 2010. Among her research interests is Angelman syndrome, and she is the principal investigator in San Diego of a multi-site consortium that conducts a natural history study and clinical trials. Other research interests include the use of facial recognition software to assist in the diagnosis of syndromes.

Her philosophy of care is to empower families to make the best choices for their children.

When not working, Dr. Bird enjoys hiking, social dancing (tango and ballroom) and cooking.
