The primary goal of Twins Research Australia is to facilitate, conduct and support research studies involving twins. These studies play an important and unique role in developing an understanding of good health, wellbeing and clinical problems from a genetic and environmental perspective.

Twin research utilises new technologies to establish the causes underlying the many health and medical issues that affect Australians and has the potential to fast track research. A twin study design is a valuable research tool for all medical and scientific researchers.
