Gary J. Farkas, Ph.D., Postdoctoral fellow from the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and colleagues from The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine recently published a manuscript titled Energy Expenditure and Nutrient Intake after Spinal Cord Injury: A Comprehensive Review and Practical Recommendations in the prestigious…

Neural stimulation techniques, generally known as “neuromodulation,” have revealed untapped recovery potential after spinal cord injury (SCI). The Miami Project has been selected, and is currently seeking research participants, as a participating site in the ongoing Up-LIFT ARC Therapy Multi-Center Clinical Study. The non-invasive spinal cord stimulation study has a primary goal of reporting safety…

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Vance Lemmon who received a Lifetime Achievement Award in Neural Regeneration at the virtual 2021 International Neural Regeneration Symposium in Nantong, China. The research recognized by the award was produced by an 18-year partnership with Professor John Bixby at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, developing high throughput phenotypic…

We know by now that September is designated as National Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Awareness Month, an especially important designation for The Miami Project, and all working in research, advocacy and awareness. This designation, first granted by the U.S. Senate in 2012, continues to be a validation of the great work being done in the…
