About this site

Bayesian BMD (BBMD) is a web-based benchmark dose (BMD) analysis system featuring the PyStan library for Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation. The system is capable of using common dichotomous and continuous dose-response models to estimate the BMD for various individual dose-response models and model-averaged BMD.

The Principal Investigator (PI) of this project is Dr. Kan Shao who is responsible for the scientific methodology employed in the system and supervising the entire project. The lead software developer of the project is Andy Shapiro.
