“Musica animae levamen, music is medicine for our souls.” (Rueger, 1991)
On behalf of the Interdisciplinary Society for Quantitative Research in Music and Medicine (ISQRMM), I would like to welcome you to our website. Our vision at the ISQRMM conferences is to explore the unanswered questions regarding the efficacies of all forms of music on the human mind, body and soul. Our conference participants enjoy good collegiality, professional dialogue and collaborative scientific inquiries into these unanswered questions. Characteristically, there is music from different cultural backgrounds with an overall very amiable, scholarly, and friendly environment with all our conferences since our inaugural conference in 2011 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, which was rated to be among the best conferences of the year by the state of Utah. Equally successful was the 2nd biannual International conference held in July 2013 at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia and at Immaculata University in 2015.
The Interdisciplinary Society for Quantitative Research in Music and Medicine (ISQRMM) is a society of scholars and researchers pursuing the studies on the effects of music on the health of the human mind, body and soul. The mission of ISQRMM is to host peer-reviewed international conferences that are interdisciplinary in nature and are devoted to the dissemination of new, unpublished research and clinical practice relating to the field of music and medicine.
At our conferences we also have concerts and experiential presentations by Music therapists, Sound Healers and Chinese Medicine practitioners. This Interdisciplinary approach is what makes our conferences unique!
