Dr. Bejaoui wrote an article regarding genetic research which was published in the February issue of Neurology. Neurology contains an article entitled “Confirmation of linkage of type 1 hereditary sensory neuropathy to human chromosome 9q22” by Dr. Khemissa Bejaoui (and others). Ellen Burns’ and Larry Deater’s names are included in this article.
A grant (written by Dr. Bejaoui) was approved by the Neuropathy Association. Khemissa wrote this grant (her first grant application, too) for the Deater project which was awarded one of four grants given by the organization for $25,000 a year for two years! Congratulations to Dr. Bejaoui for her success in winning this grant that will benefit the research being done on the Deater disease!
