Gail F. Beach Memorial Visiting Lectureship Series

The Gail F. Beach Memorial Visiting Lectureship Series has brought many renowned neuroscientists from all over the world to our campus and has provided outstanding opportunities for The Miami Project faculty and our neuroscience colleagues at the University of Miami.

The lectureship series is dedicated to Gail F. Beach, a schoolteacher and person with SCI, whose generosity and foresight continues to provide significant contributions to our research efforts today.

Lectures are held on the first Wednesday of the month at the James K. Batten Apex Center and Auditorium located on the 7th floor of the Lois Pope LIFE Center building. Lectures begin at noon.
