The Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine brings together a cross-disciplinary team of translational scientists and clinicians to accelerate discoveries of age-related memory loss and cognitive impairment produced by various brain related disorders. It seeks to train the next generation of clinical translational investigators capable of translating scientific discoveries into clinical practice, and to advance brain health in communities.
