Dose-Response Calculator

The Dose-Response Calculator provides the user with a tool that greatly reduces the work it takes to perform a risk assessment. The tool offers an automated dose response calculator, which the user simply has to select a pathogen and input a dose to generate a completed dose response. An added feature of this application is its connection with the QMRAwiki, which provides a dynamically updated list of pathogens and models that the user can select from.

Go to the calculator

Live dose-response graphs

Graph and compare different dose response models in real time:

Try out the graphs

Note: This app uses software ('shiny' package in R) that is still in beta.

Cost-benefit analysis example spreadsheet

We have a simple example of cost-benefit tradeoffs for a scenario of decontamination following an anthrax event. File:RiskMgtAnthraxDeconExample.xls

See also cost-benefit analysis elsewhere in this wiki.

'Beach App': a tool to assist beach closure decisions

This is an Android app (under develoment) that uses weather and hydrologic data from the internet, in combination with data observed at the beach, to determine risk of illness for recreational users.

A demonstration version of this tool is on this wiki: Beach App demo
