How can we help?
Who we are
Twins Research Australia brings twins and researchers together for vital health research that benefits everyone. Our research impacts health globally, contributing to the most pressing health issues of our times.
We are non-profit with our research made possible through the incredible volunteer efforts of our 75,000 twin members Australia-wide. They share their similarities and differences to help us understand more about human health and to better the lives of all.
