South Florida SCIMS

The University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital together serve as the home for the South Florida Spinal Cord Injury Model Systems (SCIMS). Jackson Memorial Hospital is the third largest medical center in the United States, and it serves a diverse community with a large Hispanic and Caribbean population. The South Florida SCIMS provides a comprehensive system of care from the time of injury through reintegration into the community. Members of the South Florida SCIMS also serve as part of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, a research institute at the University of Miami dedicated to curing spinal cord injury. Other research projects conducted by SCIMS faculty investigate stem cells, nerve regeneration, exercise, shoulder pain, neuropathic pain, diaphragm pacing, and quality of life in individuals with spinal cord injury.
