The University of Southampton

About us

LifeLab was first initiated in 2008 at the University of Southampton. It has continued to develop through the collaboration of researchers from the University’s Education SchoolFaculty of Medicine, and the Mathematics and Science Learning Centre.

LifeLab draws on these researchers’ findings and combines them with research evidence from elsewhere to raise teenagers’ awareness and interest in the science underpinning health issues, and make positive changes to adolescent health-related attitudes. LifeLab works in close partnership with LENScience in Auckland, and this was recently strengthened further through the awarding of funding from the BUPA Foundation to carry out an international evaluation of the intervention in both locations.
