About this app

***Temporarily, DreamLab is being used to support research to combat the coronavirus (COVID-19).***

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 set up DreamLab once and it will get to work each time you plug your phone in.

We’ve all been touched by cancer. Our best chance of beating it is by working together. And while sleep has always been good for you – with the DreamLab app, it can be good for others too.

Simply download the app (#) and choose which Project you’d like to support. You can also track the Contribution you’ve made and keep up to date with News.

Dreamlab supports cancer research globally, and is powered by the Vodafone Foundation.

Great app but occasionally will stop connecting & the "Connect me!" message appears as if there is no Wi-Fi or mobile data connection available when there is. When that occurs, if I open it through the persistent notification, then it appears to connect but just stays at 0 Calculations for hours & even several days, usually until a new version of the app is released. Once updated it starts working again. It has been doing that again the last few days, so I've been checking for an update often.

I loved the app I have taken part in projects like these for years. A few things need worked on. It does randomly change your research project you have selected. Then about 2 weeks agao it just stopped working. Same problem all of the recent comments, app won't start and if it does it says not connected to a wifi or cell network. I reinstalled the app still nothing. If it is not fixed soon or an acknowledgment of the problem I will delete the app.
