I have a function that is called within a loop. Is there a way to load the mat file with a bunch of data in it one time or do I need to load everytime the function is called?

In newer versions, you could use the matfile class. Then you should be able to load only the parts you need when you need them. If the function is being re-called each time, you could store the object as a persistent or global variable so that it sticks around, or you could just recreate it on each iteration. I would guess recreating it is a good option.
doc matfile
doc persistent
