The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis of the University of Miami School of Medicine is a non-profit research center dedicated to finding more effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for paralysis that results from spinal cord injury (SCI). Spinal cord injury results from trauma to, or disease of, the spinal cord. The primary result of SCI is paralysis. Founded in 1985, the Miami Project is a coalition of researchers, clinicians, and therapists whose expertise all relates directly to spinal cord injury and whose full-time focus is spinal cord research. Clinical and rehabilitation programs require the participation of a limited number of volunteers. In addition to basic research, the Miami Project offers the 1-800-STAND UP information line for questions regarding spinal cord injury research. It also publishes informational brochures and, two times a year, a newsletter.
