April 4 - 5, 2019 | University of Miami


Welcome to the third Annual Neural Engineering Symposium at the University of Miami organized by the Institute for Neural Engineering (INEM), Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, the Department of Biomedical Engineering and A Seed for Success (SEEDS). Neural Engineering facilitates the development of new clinical technologies for the assessment of neurological function and the treatment of neurological diseases. To energize fundamental aspects of neural science, engineering and reparative medicine, and facilitate collaborations across various disciplines, the University of Miami is hosting this third Research Symposium in Neural Engineering and invites you to be a part of the event.

Research Symposium aims to bring together the research, education, innovation and industry communities that can help energize fundamental aspects of neural science, engineering and reparative medicine, and facilitate collaborations across various disciplines.

The poster session at this meeting is aimed to allow for the exchange of scientific discoveries and novel innovations within the neuroscience and neural engineering field. Please follow guidelines below to prepare your posters:

  • Each poster presenter will receive an identifier (poster number) and is assigned a six foot (1.8 m) by four foot (1.2 m) poster board to use for presentation.
  • Poster session will take place between 11:30am to 2:00pm.


Come and join colleagues from biology, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, neuroscience, neurosurgery, and psychology in this two-day event. Network with neuroengineering researchers and key opinion leaders from other Florida institutions including University of Florida, Florida International University, University of South Florida, Florida Atlantic University, Max Planck and Scripps Research.
