The QMRA Wiki is a community portal for current quantitative information and knowledge developed for the Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) field. It is an evolving knowledge repository intended to be the go to reference source for the microbial risk assessment community. To learn more about how to contribute edit the wiki, please follow the instructions here.






Explore the Risk Framework





QMRA Library

Check out this extensive library of QMRA-related articles, databases, videos, etc.

Enter the library
Dose Response Monograph

Find out more about the first compendium of dose-response models. If you would like to order a copy of the monograph in pdf or hard copy form which is associated with the QMRAwiki content, please follow this link to send an email to Dr. Joan Rose:
