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.

I sometimes forget it's there, since it runs in the background. Is simple, and great premise. Help cure diseases by simply plugging in your phone. The one nitpick I have with it, is if I optimize my phone with the Device Care, I will have to open the app manually next time to get it to work. After that one time, I do t have to touch it again until the next optimization.

The idea is amazing and very productive, but I normally charge my phone on a regular basis, not only during the night, and cant prevent the app from working automatically. This is a bit frustrating as sometimes i need my phone to charge fast and the app running doesnt allow it. Is there any on/off switch or setting of work between this time range only? If not it would make a huge improvement.

Great app but why does it keep saying zero calculations after hours being on? I have looked in the help section of the site and am finding no answers on that issue. Thinking I may have gotten ahold of a bad download I also deleted it and reinstalled it. Other than that I love that you just open it up, get it going and go off to bed! I first heard about DreamLab when I listened to the together at home concert rebroadcast on YouTube. I had to download it and try it. Really good app.!
