Imagine if we could speed up time in the fight against cancer.

DreamLab is a multi-award winning app that uses the collective power of smartphones to fast track cancer research. With cancer being one of the biggest causes of premature death worldwide, finding answers through medical research is incredibly important. DreamLab exists to help us get there sooner. And the more people who use the app, the faster it works.


Researchers need supercomputers to scan DNA in immense detail and crunch complex data. When you plug your phone in and power DreamLab, it downloads tiny parts of a huge research project from the cloud to calculate, and sends the results back to the research team. The more people who power DreamLab, the faster we can complete critical research. All you need to do is plug your phone in and press ‘Power DreamLab’ each night.

My Lovely Friend

Is dying from ovarian cancer spread to her lymphs and liver. She has a 16yr old daughter, who turns 17 in a couple of weeks and a son who is 19 and has started his first job. She, Hubby & teens adopted a girl who is now six years old.. I implore everyone to think of the families affected by this deadly disease, and help take Dreamland to the next level by taking a moment to dowload the app and tap ‘start’ before you sleep. It’s so simple and we need your genius smartphones to do the calculations to take us all closer to beating cancer in a much shorter timeframe.. it’s so easy to do!!!

Simple way to do so much good

Such a great use of under-utilised processing capacity. So easy and such a good cause - well done Vodafone Foundation for supporting this.

Would love an indicator showing how far through a calculation it is so I can wait another minute to let it finish before closing the app.
