    Each year more than 1,000 babies in the United States are born with a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). For the majority of these babies, the cause of the CDH is unknown. DHREAMS (Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration; Advancing Molecular Science) study was created to improve the understanding of the molecular genetic basis of CDH. This National Institute of Health (NIH)-funded research team is composed of health care providers and researchers across the country, coordinated at Columbia University Medical Center. Multiple medical centers are enrolling individuals and families...
