Welcome from the Director of the USF Health Neuroscience Institute

Welcome to the USF Health Neuroscience Institute (NSI). Throughout these pages, we hope that you will find inspiration, direction and hope from the work that our team is doing—whether in the laboratories, in the clinics or in the community.

The NSI is an ambitious concept designed to accelerate progress in the neurosciences by promoting inter-disciplinary collaborations among USF faculty/staff, as well as with partners outside of the university. These varied alliances occur across subject expertise and bridge domains.
The USF Morsani College of Medicine with the NSI collaborate with physicians to better understand the connection between research, treatment and prevention.
