InVivo Therapeutics and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis Form Strategic Research Collaboration to Develop Novel Treatments for Spinal Cord Injuries
Date:5/4/2011

ng with InVivo toward our common goal of finding new and better treatments for spinal cord injury."

About The Miami ProjectIn 1985, Barth A. Green, M.D. and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti helped found The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis after Nick's son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game. Today, The Miami Project is the world's most comprehensive spinal cord injury research center and a designated Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.  The Miami Project's international team is housed in the Lois Pope LIFE Center and includes more than 250 scientists, researchers and clinicians who take innovative approaches to the challenge of spinal cord injury.

The Miami Project's Christine E. Lynn Human Clinical Trials Initiative will take discoveries found to be successful in laboratory studies and fast track them to human studies with the approval of the FDA. The Miami Project is well positioned and confident that we have the expertise, knowledge and drive to navigate through the process and continue to initiate new human clinical trials. Since its inception, The Miami Project has worked carefully and diligently towards these goals and the results show that the time is right to make these important steps into humans.
