How we can help

Let's collaborate on a grant application

The Validitron team provides free advice on designing and running digital health studies. We can also support your digital health research grant application.

Design and run a study in our SimLab

Our SimLab is free to use for Faculty of Medicine and MACH researchers to test out digital health tools before entering the real world.

Prototype and test using our Sandbox

Before incurring expensive development costs, our UX expertise and Sandbox is available to help you design and test early prototypes of your digital tool.

We welcome enquiries from any academic or healthcare researcher, whether you're from the University of Melbourne, MACH partner organisations, or further afield.
