Kate Ackerman, M.D

The Ackerman laboratory is focused on elucidating the genetic causes of congenital diaphragmatic hernia and pulmonary hypoplasia by investigating the normal development of the embryonic diaphragm and lung.  The lab also uses forward genetic screening to identify novel gene mechanisms for congenital diaphragmatic hernia and other devastating structural birth defects.
