|The Neuroscience Institute at MUSC exists to create a nationally known center of neuroscience research, education and treatment by facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration in the South Carolina neuroscience community. With members drawn from departments at MUSC, the University of South Carolina, Clemson and the Greenwood Genetic Center, the Institute has grown into an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in cutting-edge Neuroscience.|
The primary focus of the Neuroscience Institute is to bridge the gap between the basic sciences and clinical sciences to provide South Carolina with the needed resources to treat and potentially cure neurodegenerative disorders. The Institute concentrates on stroke, spinal cord injury, and neurodevelopmental processes, however, provides support for research in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
