Thank you for choosing to give to the DHREAMS study being conducted by the Division of Clinical Genetics at Columbia University Medical Center
This tool helps you:
  • Make gifts using a credit card
  • Make gifts in honor or in memory of someone
  • Make gifts jointly with a spouse

Each year more than 1,000 babies in the United States are born with a Congential Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). For the majority of these babies, the cause of the CDH is unknown.

The DHREAMS (Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration; Advancing Molecular Science) study was created to improve the understanding of the molecular genetic basis of CDH. The knowledge gained through this research will lead to improved diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for individuals and families with CDH.

We are appreciative of all donations of all sizes. It costs approximately $150 to enroll a family in the study and $1,000 to complete comprehensive genetic analysis on one individual. We provide a personal thank you note with the information necessary to make your donation tax deductible.

We are also available to work with you to coordinate a fundraising event or to have donations made in honor of your family member.

Please contact our Research Coordinator Julia Wynn at or (212) 305-6987 if you are interested in learning more about the importance of your donation or to speak about coordinating a fundraiser.

If you prefer to make a donation by mail, please make checks out to "Trustees of Columbia University" with DHREAMS in the memo line and send to:

Wendy Chung, MD, PhD
