MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Family and Friends,
I am so incredibly grateful to all of you for your generous support of The Miami Project and The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis.
The past two years have been quite challenging to the global community and to many of you, our closest family members and friends.
It has been a great joy to see how much excitement we have seen since we’ve returned to inperson activities and events. Led by Scientific Director, Dr. W. Dalton Dietrich, The Miami Project research team continues to push the envelope and develop new and compelling discoveries that will lead to life-changing treatments.
The Lois Pope LIFE Center is the home of our basic science research and serves as the pipeline to our Clinical Trials Initiatives. Within its walls our researchers have seen significant advancements in our hypothermia, axonal regeneration, drug discovery, gene therapy, cell transplantation, and our world-class neural engineering programs.
The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center helps bring our basic science discoveries into clinical reality. The Lynn Center houses all our clinical science programs, including our brain computer interface research, neuromodulation and activity-based plasticity laboratories, motor rehabilitation and functional electrical stimulation spaces, and much more.
We have never been more excited and enthusiastic than we are today about the mission and success of The Miami Project and The Buoniconti Fund, including our expanded research focusing on all neurological disorders and diseases.
Not a day passes that I do not think about my dad and everything he did to change the lives of millions of spinal cord injured people all over the world. His legacy continues to inspire us and motivates every researcher, staff member and volunteer to never give up until a cure for paralysis is found!
Thank you, our loyal friends, for your continued dedication, commitment, and belief in our mission. We want to thank all our wonderful donors, tireless volunteers, and our University of Miami family.
THANK YOU FOR STANDING UP FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T!
Marc A. Buoniconti
