Event details

This one hour seminar will provide a rapid overview of some of the studies being carried out as part of a 10 year programme of inter-disciplinary e-health research at the University of Southampton that has already attracted over £15 million funding to the university over the past 5 years. LifeGuide is unique software pioneered by the university that enables people who have no computing science background to create interactive websites to support management of health and illness – or any other type of behaviour change. The seminar will illustrate the kinds of studies that can be carried out using LifeGuide and how the software will continue to develop and be deployed over the next five years.
