Scientific Events

OPEN HOUSE

We are inviting our spinal cord injured community to join us for our 7th Annual Open House, to visit our research center and learn about the latest in spinal cord injury research.  Get an update about clinical trials and pre-clinical breakthroughs and technologies.  Join in the conversation about stem cells, their use in research, and how to evaluate experimental treatments.  Visit some of our labs before the scientific program starts, and meet the scientists and clinicians.

This event is FREE, runs from 11:30am-4:30pm, and includes refreshments.  Individuals living with SCI plus their family and friends and other members of the community are invited to attend.  RSVP required at mpinfo@med.miami.edu or 305-243-7108

LECTURE SERIES

The Miami Project lecture series (25-30 lectures/year) provides opportunities for our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their research and receive feedback.

The Gail F. Beach memorial lectureship series (5-10 lectures/year) provides outstanding educational opportunities by inviting 5-10 renowned neuroscientists from around the world to our campus each year to promote education and collaboration.

We also coordinate the Neuroscience Center Seminar Series (10-15 lectures/year) for the University of Miami neuroscience program.

Special guest lecturers (15-20 lectures/year) are invited periodically each year to share their unique expertise in relevant areas of neuroscience research.

GAIL F. BEACH MEMORIAL LECTURE SERIES

The Miami Project has brought many renowned neuroscientists from around the world to our campus as part of The Gail F. Beach Memorial Visiting Lectureship Series. The lectureship series is dedicated to Gail F. Beach, a schoolteacher and person with SCI, whose generosity and foresight provides outstanding educational opportunities for The Miami Project researchers and our neuroscience colleagues at the University of Miami.  Lectures are held in the James K. Batten Apex Center and Auditorium in the Lois Pope LIFE Center, 7th floor from 12-1pm.

NEUROSCIENCE CENTER SEMINAR SERIES 

The University of Miami Neuroscience Center is a broad interdisciplinary program that unites neuroscientists from three campuses and more than a dozen basic science and clinical departments.  Each year they host a series of scientific events which include an invited lecturer that matches the interdisciplinary nature of the program.  Lectures are held in the James K. Batten Apex Center and Auditorium in the Lois Pope LIFE Center, 7th floor from 1-2pm.

BRAIN FAIR

The Brain Fair is designed to give children a fun, activity-filled course in neuroscience, starting with the basics of neuroanatomy, aspects of how the brain works, and ending with advanced topics such as learning and memory.
