The Musae Research and Service Institute (MRSI), is a 501(c)3
non-profit corporation, which performs scientific and academic research
on topics pertinent to society and culture in order to develop educational
programs and various services for the public. Musae is
Latin for the Greek muses which represent various intellectual pursuits,
signifying the broad and diverse types of intellectual and service
projects that MRSI seeks to undertake and promote.
Musae Research and Service Institute recognizes and emphasizes
the human person and human spirit as the heart of culture. All
science, technology, and art should be oriented to the service of the
human person and towards the betterment of her environment. MRSI
is an umbrella organization which undertakes, supports, and promotes
various academic and educational initiatives. Currently our
primary focus is the Pathos
Project, a medical, scientific,
and academic research inquiry into suffering and depersonalization
in the clinical context in order to develop educational and clinical
solutions. As physicians and scientists become more scientifically
and technologically advanced we must remain focused on the patient
as a person, for when we treat them as mere biological machines, and
not holistically, we threaten their dignity and risk losing our own
humanity in the process. For more information click on the initiative
link or visit www.pathos-project.org .
Founded in the spring of 2005, MRSI is young but growing. Our
website provides information and resources about our current research,
future goals, and eventual services.
As a non-profit corporation, the Musae Institute is publicly supported
through donations and gifts. Our research, goals, and future
success hinge on the generosity of individuals and organizations. If
you support the work of the Musae Research and Service Institute please
consider making a tax-deductible gift to enable our work.
