Welcome to the USF
Neuroscience Collaborative

Welcome from the Directors

The USF NSC is an ambitious program designed to accelerate progress in USF neuroscience research by promoting new campus-wide collaborations among USF faculty, as well as with partners outside of the University. These new relationships will certainly advance scientific knowledge, and many of them will also translate into new therapies for a wide array of previously untreatable and devastating diseases of the nervous system.

In addition to serving as a national model for academic collaboration, this program will help create new virtual translational research centers, which will successfully bridge the varied institutions within USF and provide a new critical mass of neuroscience talent through collaboration. We welcome you to make use of the resources on this site to further your own academic collaborations and research efforts, and we thank you for being a part of the thriving world of neuroscience research at USF.
