Our faculty is composed of advisors, co-directors, and those responsible for disciplines. Our professors are trained in specialized areas of Neurology and Neuroscience and different areas of knowledge. All professors hold, at least, a Ph.D. degree, and most of them have a ‘sandwich’ doctorate or postdoctoral abroad; they lead consolidated research groups and exchange knowledge with national institutions and abroad; attend teaching activities at the undergraduate and graduate levels, guide and/or supervise students of scientific initiation, masters, doctoral, postdoctoral, and interns.

For the registration in the program, the professor must meet the strict criteria established and USP regulations based on the activities developed in the last five years..
