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international conferences that are interdisciplinary in nature and are devoted to the dissemination of new, unpublished research and clinical practice relating to the field of music and medicine.
Following the success of the first “Interdisciplinary Society for Quantitative Research in Music and Medicine” Conference in 2011 at Weber State University in Utah, the second conference will be held on July 26-27, 2013. The study of the beneficial effects of music in medicine is a discipline that has spurred an interest among scholars from both the humanities and biomedical disciplines since the 18th century. Researchers in the 20th century embraced these studies with scholarly and academic vigor. The purpose of the upcoming conference is to explore the unanswered questions regarding the efficacies of all forms of music on the human body, mind and soul.
