DreamLab

Vodafone Foundation Australia provides the free DreamLab program to aid Garvan Institute of Medical Research researchers in solving problems related to cancer research using the processing power of idle smartphones. The foundation estimates that problems that are part of the cancer research puzzle may be solved 30 times faster if just 1,000 people use the app.

Help solve cancer while you sleep.

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research needs more computing power to speed up cancer research. Donate the power of your smartphone to help, with DreamLab - the flagship program of Vodafone Foundation Australia.

Download the app, choose how much data to give, and let your phone crack a piece of the cancer puzzle as it recharges.

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research is one of Australia's largest medical research institutions with over 600 scientists, students, and support staff. The institute conducts research on cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease as well as autoimmune and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and Sjogren's syndrome, a chromic automimmune disease in which the body's white blood cells destroy the exocrine glands. The institute developed a test that may predict the outcome of prostate cancer more effectively than the standard (PSA) test. Genetic research is conducted by the institute and in 2014 the institute became one of three organizations in the world able to sequence the entire human genome for less than $1,000 USD.
