Clinical Trials

The Miami Project clinical researchers currently have several clinical trials and current studies available for people who have had a spinal cord injury; some are for acute injuries and some are for chronic injuries.  The clinical trials are testing the safety and efficacy of different neuroprotective, repairative, or modulatory interventions.  The clinical studies are investigating questions regarding exercise science, nutrition, rehabilitation training, pain, male fertility, aging, and brain-machine interface technology.

If you would like to be considered for these or future Miami Project trials or studies, please see our Register for a Research Program section, send us a message, or call The Miami Project Education Office at 305-243-7108.
