Message from Provost Wilcox and Dean Klasko
USF has rapidly become an international leader in education and research by developing innovative models which expand the boundaries of knowledge through collaboration among its faculty. This progressive vision is embodied by the USF Neuroscience Collaborative, as it has brought the collective skills and knowledge of over 200 USF faculty members to bear on advancing our understanding of nervous system function and disease. The USF NSC network has rapidly assembled modular teams of researchers with diverse talents to address a broad range of neuroscience-research questions.
With combined support from the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Medicine, the USF NSC has stimulated the development of outstanding and novel research programs, which include faculty from every college on campus. This unique initiative is not only yielding immediate benefit for USF, but will also become a model program for maximizing research progress for universities everywhere. This web site allows investigators from within the university and from around the world to experience the great depth of scholarship and programmatic excellence which mark the Neurosciences at USF, and provides a window into our innovative strategies for scholastic excellence as a leading university of the twenty first century. — Provost Wilcox
USF Health is committed to the vision of USF as a leader among national and global institutions. One of our particular strengths is our commitment to forging innovated, networked enterprises which span not only our University and Tampa Bay, but also our state, the country and the world. Many of these endeavors will ultimately redefine medical care, education and scientific research for the twenty first century.
The USF Neuroscience Collaborative is a perfect example of how USF is simultaneously leveraging the tremendous talents and resources of our faculty, while also drafting a creative blueprint for how things can work better for academic institutions everywhere to follow. Initiatives like the USF NSC are rapidly transforming USF into an international leader in the Neurosciences and making our reputation as a leader in creating innovative academic models. We look forward to ever more progress as we combine our substantial faculty resources to take us to ever greater heights. — Dean Klasko
