Surveillance and Evaluation Program for Public Health
We are a group of scientists from diverse backgrounds such as physics, biochemistry, mathematics, biostatistics, computer science, and neuroscience. We work with clinicians, epidemiologists, behavioural scientists, policy makers, pharmaceutical companies, molecular biologists and microbiologists and we develop models to understand infectious disease dynamics; this includes epidemiological transmission dynamics, forecasting epidemic trajectories under various interventions in order to design health policy tools, and obtaining insight into kinetic virological and immunological interactions of various diseases with the immune system and host cells. The main infections we investigate are HIV, Chlamydia, and HPV. We have designed Sampling and Sensitivity Analysis Tools (SaSAT) as a free downloadable software package for analysing computational models and their broad parameter spaces.

What is MCR Installer
MCR stands for MATLAB Component Runtime.
The MCR allows MATLAB compiled programs to run outside of MATLAB.
It works in a similar way to the Java Virtual Machine (allows the execution of java scripts),
and contains a series of *.dll and various other files, that are able to interpret and execute a program written in the MATLAB language.
The MCR is specific to the version of MATLAB that produced it.
For SaSAT, we used version 7.6 of the MCR and was written in MATLAB 7.4.0 (R2007a).
If you do not have version 7.6 of the MCR installed, or are unsure, then it is best to download the SaSAT with the MCR.
