It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Department of Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Our mission includes delivering the most exceptional clinical care to our patients, leading transformative cutting-edge research, and training the leaders of tomorrow in both neurology and neuroscience. Our department’s faculty, trainees, and staff work at a University and in a community that values and embraces diversity and strives to make an impact worldwide through our global and public health efforts.  

It could not be a more exciting time for our field. Advances in the laboratory are increasingly being brought to the bedside to help the millions of patients suffering from neurologic disorders. Our unique structure as an integrated group of scientists and clinicians working closely together allows us to rapidly move discoveries into the clinic and the hospital while practicing models of care that are focused on putting patients and their families first.

The individuals featured throughout these pages have dedicated their work to solving the deeply personal neurological diseases that impact us all. Working together as a team, we fully believe that we have an environment of discovery, clinical care, and education that can lead to incredible advances in the coming years.
