This 2-week course focuses on solving real-world risk analysis problems & practical modeling methods. The first week covers probability, statistics theory, stochastic processes, and core risk modeling principles. The second week focuses on more advanced quantitative modeling methods required for QRAs of international standards, and the development & review of realistic quantitative risk assessments used to support policy decisions.

Dr. Kurt Rinehart to Attend
URTeC Conference in San Antonio

Dr. Kurt Rinehart will be attending URTeC, the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference in San Antonio, Texas, July 20-22, 2015.

To this end, he will be sharing knowledge with leading experts in the industry through short courses and networking forums.

EpiX Analytics Work Used in a European Food Safety
Agency Scientific Opinion Report

The European Food Safety Agency EFSA), has released a scientific opinion on canine leishmaniosis (CanL) which draws largely from work involving a stochastic model developed by EpiX consultants.

EFSA's scientific opinions are a key component of science-based decision making in Europe, as they are used as the basis to establish risk manage-ment strategies and policies in food safety in Europe.

The model developed by EpiX quantifies the risk of introduction and persistence of CanL in Europe as a result of the movement of dogs, and uses novel methods to incorporate the uncertainty in key model parameters and the variability inherent to the spread of an infectious disease with multiple hosts. The model has been published in the Epidemiology and Infection Journal. The full text of EFSA's scientific opinion can be found here.
