The Miami Project Remote Exposure to Neurotrauma Research Program is a fully remote, “do at your own pace” version of our remote summer sessions. The 8-unit course mirrors the summer research program and will be offered during the months of September thru January.

This course is open to students, educators, and the general public. Anyone who is interested in strengthening their understanding of neurotrauma research, and the work being done at The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, is invited to participate.  Undergraduate students participating in the remote session may also be interested in applying for our “in-person” internship, the Henry G. Steinbrenner Scholars Program, beginning in May 2022.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact Maria Chagoyen, Education Coordinator, at 305-243-7108 or mchagoyen@med.miami.edu
