DreamLab: World Cancer Day 2022

Dr Kirill Veselkov, the lead researcher at Imperial’s Department of Surgery and Cancer, explains why you should be using DreamLab.

It is the largest ‘volunteer computing’ initiative ever undertaken. Users simply charge their phones overnight, fire up the app and donate their phones’ brainpower to the projects.
