Mobi-Kids is run by the CREAL Radiation Programme, which seeks to better understand the potential risks associated with exposure to ionising and non-ionising radiation, with a view to improving public health and ensuring adequate radiation protection of the general public, patients and those exposed in their work.

On the 18th June 2013, three CREAL Radiation Programme researchers attended the OPERRA project (Open Project for the European Radiation Research Area) kick-off meeting in Paris. The OPERRA project, funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme - Euratom, aims to support the MELODI Association (Multidisciplinary European Low Dose Initiative) to build an umbrella structure for the integration of radiation protection research in EUROPE and to create the necessary architecture for the facilitation of long-term European research programmes in radiation protection, also taking advantage of the valuable experience gathered through the DoReMi European Network of Excellence (Low Dose Research towards Multidisciplinary Integration).

Analyses of data on brain cancer risk from five countries lead by CREAL examined whether a history of allergy is associated with the risk of brain tumours. The study included over 2,000 brain tumour cases and over 2,500 control subjects. The analyses found significant inverse associations between a history of allergy and risk of glioma, meningioma, and acoustic neuroma. While allergy history may influence brain tumour risk, further research addressing potential sources of bias is needed.
