Life Changing

Our team of scientists, researchers, clinicians and staff work tirelessly to achieve extraordinary scientific progress in our quest to find a cure for paralysis.

The Education department provides information about research programs, clinical studies, resources for living with paralysis, rehabilitation resources, clinical care referrals, and advice on worldwide investigational treatments and research. They also offer educational tours, lectures and additional outreach events to promote scientific awareness.

The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis was co-founded by Barth A. Green, M.D., world -renowned neurosurgeon, and Nick Buoniconti, NFL Hall of Fame linebacker after Nick’s son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game.

Research at The Miami Project has changed the landscape of knowledge and therapeutic strategies for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.


I am often reminded of the promise my father made to me that he would never give up until we found a cure for paralysis. His promise has turned this commitment into a reality changing medical history and giving incredible scientific results to the millions worldwide with a spinal cord injury. We will never rest until everyone suffering from paralysis can rise from their wheelchairs once and for all! I suffered a spinal cord injury in 1985. The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis really made a difference in my life.

We are actively transplanting chronically injured subjects with complete and incomplete cervical spinal cord injury. Cellular transplantation approaches after spinal cord injury offer hope for people living with paralysis and other quality of life issues.
