    "This year's conference theme is 'Music and Medicine: Composing the

Science of Healing,'" says Dr. Angela LaSalle, the co-founder and Chairman

of the Board for ARIMM. "We have organized an innovative conference

designed to promote conversation among the Science and Music disciplines.

Starting with a review of quantum physics and moving through the latest

trends in medicine and music therapy, we will be building a bridge to show

how attention to the relationship of the body's response to music can lead

us to the next wave of medical therapies. Attendees can participate in

panel discussions, network with our speakers, and hear the latest research

on how music can impact inflammation, chronic disease and learn new

treatment strategies."

    "The goal of this conference is to gather knowledge from all

disciplines and build the research tools we need to find innovative

solutions to today's health issues. All disciplines and levels of study are

welcome. Whether you are a scientist, clinician, technician, performer,

student, or just love music, we invite you to participate in our forum of

presentations, panel discussions and brainstorming sessions. We seek

research ideas that explore the healing effects of sound and music. We hope

to find the scientific basis for the effect that music can have on the

disease process," says Dr. LaSalle.

    The ARIMM 2008 Conference is co-sponsored and hosted by the IPFW

Department of Music. The 2006 and 2007 conferences were held at the

University of Arizona.

    This year's keynote speaker, Claude Swanson, Ph.D., physicist and

author, will begin the conference with a view of quantum physics that will

launch a musical journey into the biochemistry and physiology of the human

body. Designed to bridge the gap between science and music, this conference

will challenge the boundaries that separate the disciplines and will bring

the science of creativity back to the art of medicine.
