The del Campo Lab studies the ecology and evolution of marine animals microbiomes and how they are affected by climate change.
The lab is led by Dr. Javier del Campo and is part of the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (UPF-CSIC) and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
Our research of interest include Microbiology, Ecology and Evolution, which we study using “omics”, imaging and bioinformatics. We are always keen to recruit new lab members if you are interested please contact us.
I am a Catalan microbial ecologist and Group Leader at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (UPF-CSIC) in Barcelona. I completed my bachelor’s and my Ph.D. in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology at the Institute of Marine Science - CSIC (Barcelona), followed by postdoctoral research at the University of Barcelona, the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), and back to the Institute of Marine Science. In February 2019 I joined as Assistant Professor the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami and in February 2021 I joined the Institute for Evolutionary Biology. My research has focused on the study of the ecology and evolution of microbial eukaryotes but recently, I have expanded my scope to the prokaryotes in order to have an integrated view of the microbiome. I am currently investigating microbial community ecology in marine animal-associated environments using cutting-edge sequencing technologies and computational biology. I hope that my research can help to have a better understanding of the role that microorganisms play in the response of animals to climate change.
