What makes this discovery so exceptional is that this new gene called NMNAT1 – known to be crucial for life – has never been associated with any human disease. This is the first time such a major correlation has been established. “This is probably one of the most important discoveries in neuroscience and blindness in the past 15 years,” said Dr. Robert Koenekoop, first author of the study, …
