European epidemiological study on Radiation-induced Lens Opacities for Interventional Cardiologists (EURALOC), European Commission, FP7 - OPERRA

EEAE participates in EURALOC research project, funded by the European Commission, which focuses on the impact of low dose radiation to the lens of the eye. The project will combine the know-how and expertise in the fields of epidemiology, ophthalmology and dosimetry for studying the impact of radiation on the eye’s lens, in order to establish a dose-response relationship for low doses. The program, which started in December 2014, is joined by 14 partners and is coordinated by the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK-CEN).
