About Us

The USF-ARC is directed by Theresa Zesiewicz, MD FAAN from the Department of Neurology at USF, with assistant direction by Kelly L. Sullivan, Ph.D.. We collaborate with several clinical and basic science departments at USF and in other universities around the country to conduct a translational neuroscience ataxia and balance center. We also conduct multi-site clinical research. Our focus is on: 

  • pharmacologic therapies 
  • physical therapy 
  • basic pharmacologic research 
  • stem cell research 
  • neuroepidemiology 
  • neurogenesis 
We closely partner with the West Central Florida Ataxia Support Group.
