    GUCY2D has been associated with autosomal recessive Leber Congenital Amaurosis and autosomal dominant cone-rod dystrophy. This retrospective case series found that autosomal recessive GUCY2D mutations may cause congenital night blindness with normal acuity and refraction, and unique electroretinography.

    Taylor will be the coordinator of a new albinism study conducted by the Drack lab. This collaborative study with the Medical College of Wisconsin proposes to establish a more comprehensive understanding of the visual deficits in individuals with albinism and other related photoreceptor foveal genetic disorders. Understanding the neurophysiology about the retinal and cortical brain structures may target the appropriate stage of the visual system for potential therapeutic approaches in albinism.
