Radiofrequency ElectroMagnetic fields exposure and BRAiN DevelopmenT from exposure assessment to dose-response assessment (REMBRANDT)

 

  • Duration: 30/04/2014 --> 30/04/2017
  • Coordinator: Mònica Guxens
  • Financing: Miguel Servet y cofinanciado por ISCIII y FEDER
  • Funded by: Proyecto asociado a contrato Miguel Servet integrado en el Plan Estatal de I+D+i 2013-2016 y cofinanciado por el ISCIII-Subdirección General de Evaluación y Fomento de la investigación el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER)
Background: Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) from mobile phones, cordless phones, their base stations, and WiFi access points have developed into a nearly ubiquitous environmental exposure. Current evidence is not conclusive on potential health effects of RF-EMF, even though physiological and molecular effects of unknown clinical significance have been identified. To date, epidemiological research of brain development from RF-EMF in children is scarce and the WHO identified it as a key research need.

Aim: To assess the association between RF-EMF exposure and brain development during childhood and adolescence.

Implications: REMBRANDT is expected to strongly contribute to the evidence of presence or absence of health effects from RF-EMF on brain development.
REMBRANDT will use three prospective population-based birth/child cohort studies, the Spanish INMA Project, the Dutch GENERATION R Study and the Swiss HERMES Study.
Rembrandt has agreed collaborations with two European projects: MOBI-EXPO (Characterization of the use of mobile phones in children, adolescents, and young adults) and GERoNiMO (Generalised electromagnetic fields research using novel methods).

Collaborating centers in the data collection:
INMA-Gipuzkoa, Spain.
INMA-Valencia, Spain.
INMA- Sabadell, Spain.
INMA-Granada, Spain.
INMA-Menorca, Spain.
GENERATION R, Rotterdam, Holland.
HERMES, Switzerland.
