Department of Neurology
About the Department
Clinical medicine has its foundation in the insights provided by basic science studies of normal and abnormal organ, cell and molecular structures and functions. In turn, the power of basic science to successfully support clinical medicine is highly dependent upon input from clinical observations and experience. Partnerships between basic and clinical scientists are the most effective means of translating fundamental insights into more effective tools for the diagnosis, management, treatment, and eventual cures, for neurological disease. In the Department of Neurology, faculty members are actively engaged in individual investigator-initiated research projects, as well as the development of collaborative, interdisciplinary partnerships between basic and clinical scientists in multiple departments and schools at USC. Our research efforts reflect the diversity and complexity of the neurological diseases that afflict our patient population, such as Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and neuromuscular diseases such as inclusion body myositis and myasthenia gravis.
Recruitment begins for study exploring impact of culture, genetics on Hispanics with MSThe Keck School of Medicine of USC is actively recruiting Hispanics with multiple sclerosis (MS) to participate in a study examining the impact of genetics, acculturation and cultural perceptions on disease severity. “Very little is known about MS within the Hispanic population, and less than one percent of MS studies address… Read More »
