Digital Health Project Lab (HPI-DH-PL)

Driven by curiosity? In the “Digital Health Project Lab” you can develop and investigate your own research question. Supported by scientist with different backgrounds, you will plan, conduct, analyze and report a psychological or medical study using a digital solution (e.g., behavior tracking via smartphone).
