Chapters of The Buoniconti Fund were established in 1992 in an effort to enhance the research efforts of the scientists at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, These Chapters are a vital element to reaching The Miami Project’s goal — a cure for paralysis.
We thank our Volunteer Chapters for their hard work and loyalty! It doesn’t matter how small the gift or activity, the outcome is measured with gratitude and perseverance.
There’s no better time to become involved and make a difference!

“Leveraging Adaptive Homeostasis to Protect and Repair the Brain”
The Miami Brain Fair is a free educational event to teach students and adults about neuroscience and how the brain works. Students can touch and dissect a real brain, build a neuron from clay, discover how visual illusions really work, see neurons under a microscope, and learn about how the spinal cord connects to the brain and body. High school students can compete in the Brain Bee, which tests students’ knowledge of neuroscience.
