 Professor Argov’s main focus of research has been in Jewish hereditary neuromuscular disorders. He first described the seminal features of GNE myopathy in Persian Jews in 1982. Thirty years later, in association with Dr. Stella Mitrani-Rosenbaum, they identified the gene defect in HIBM.  This prolonged collaboration has done much towards understanding the mechanism of GNE myopathy (HIBM) and in developing ways to treat it. 
 Dr. Mitrani-Rosenbaum is widely known for discovering the gene responsible for GNE Myopathy (HIBM) in 2001.  Her lab is now dedicated to research on this condition, and continues to study targets for potential treatment
