Therapies to minimize further damage and inflammation.
The Miami Project therapeutic pipeline is helping to move new discoveries to the clinic with treatment interventions targeting the acute, subacute and chronic phases of injury. Significant progress is being made in the area of acute care where the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neuroprotective interventions such as therapeutic hypothermia are being clarified to enhance our human trials.
