AppLab was originally developed by a team of researchers at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, for use in a global study to determine the effects of a building’s indoor air quality on human health and cognitive function. After seeing the ways it helped to make this study a success, the team has made the technology available to researchers everywhere.
AppLab has been used to conduct studies in a variety of disciplines. Check out who we've partnered with to see the impact it’s making in public health and beyond.
The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Center for Health and the Global Environment, SUNY Upstate Medical University and Syracuse University implemented a study across six countries and with 500 people globally. The research team collected data from environmental sensors, the Fitbit module, demographic questionnaires, cognitive tests, and by gamifying participant compensation.
