Scientific Events

The Miami Project hosts several scientific events, including the Gail F. Beach Memorial Lecture Series, the Neuroscience Center Seminar Series, and an annual Brain Fair.  These events serve as an opportunity to share scientific information with the public and our research colleagues throughout the world.

GAIL F. BEACH MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES

The Miami Project has brought many renowned neuroscientists from around the world to our campus as part of The Gail F. Beach Memorial Visiting Lectureship Series. The lectureship series is dedicated to Gail F. Beach, a schoolteacher and person with SCI, whose generosity and foresight provides outstanding educational opportunities for The Miami Project researchers and our neuroscience colleagues at the University of Miami.  Lectures are held in the James K. Batten Apex Center and Auditorium in the Lois Pope LIFE Center, 7th floor from 12-1pm.
