Our mission is to form a transdisciplinary group of clinicians, musicians, researchers, and people with lived experience to identify and investigate the mechanisms that explain how music-based interventions improve pain-related outcomes.

AudioAnalgesiA is a collaborative research network funded by the National Center for Complementary & Integrative Health of the National Institutes of Health (NCCIH) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) under Award Number U24AT012602.

The Core Investigative Team is comprised of experts in music therapy, pain, psychology, biomedical engineering, music, medicine, social work, integrative therapies, and molecular toxicology from Indiana University, Purdue University, the University of Utah, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Maryland.

The overarching goal is to cultivate a thriving network of experts committed to improving understanding of music-based interventions in pain research.
