LSHTM Open Research Kits

 

The LSHTM Open Research Kits provide platforms to support global health research through the implementation of technological solutions to data collection and making for epidemiological, clinical research and social sciences studies that aim to improve health worldwide.

 

The Open Research Kits current provides access to three services, including

 

LSHTM Open Data Kit

A suite of tools which support the implementation of Open Data Kit, a software package for research use which allows tablet & webform based data collection via xforms.

This zero-cost data kit is available to all LSHTM researchers and their partners.

 

LSHTM Emergency and Epidemic Data Kit

A specialist implementation of our data tools, which aims to support international efforts to contain and control epidemics and humanitarian emergencies through implementation of data solutions and rapid mapping. Our team of expert data scientists, epidemiologists, triallists and clinicians are working in collaboration with the UK Public Health Rapid Support Team to provide data systems for stakeholders in emergency and epidemic response. We are able to rapidly respond with coding, hardware and data infrastructures and disseminate our tools openly.

This zero-cost data kit is available to all agencies responding to humanitarian emergencies.

 

LSHTM Open Making Kit

3D design and print support for researchers with prototyping, equipment manufacturing (for lab and field) and other making needs.

This zero-cost data kit is available to LSHTM staff and students.
