EPIPOI was developed by Wladimir J. Alonso and Benjamin J. J. McCormick using Matlab.

EPIPOI can be downloaded, used and distributed for free. We only request that the following reference is used in those analyses, figures and didactic material generated with the assistance of EPIPOI:

Financial support for the development of the epidemiological analyzes by the authors, which greatly contributed to the development of EPIPOI as a by-product, was provided by:

  • MISMS Study, an ongoing international collaborative effort to understand influenza epidemiological and evolutionary patterns, led by the Fogarty International Center, National Institutes of Health. The MISMS study is funded by the research program of the Fogarty International Center and the International Influenza Unit, Office of Global Affairs, US Department of Health and Human Services.
  • Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which supported the MAL-ED project.
  • Prêmios Santander Universidades, which supported the development of a user-friendly program for the visualization of data and implementation of epidemiological analyses.


Daniel Yukumura contributed with the implementation of several improvements in Epipoi
