My wife can finally stop telling me men are color blind…… 😅

We’ve seen that gene therapy has had an effect on just about everything and everyone in the pharmaceutical industry.

Thanks to research around the CNGA3 gene, an Achromatopsia study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has unveiled the doorway to better vision.

Achromatopsia is a hereditary gene mutation, much more severe than typical colorblindness. The study attached found gene augmentation leading to hints of color detection and vibrance, most notably to the color red. Although initial findings seem minimal, exciting signs point to an expected onset improvement as the patients adjust.

SO MAYBE I won’t catch a break on the difference between teal and turquoise anytime soon, but it’s incredible to be reminded that we can change our narratives!
