Research with us

Twins Research Australia is a national twin research centre and comprises a rich resource of data, collaborative networks and twins available for research. We have over 35,000 pairs of twins available for research and health and lifestyle data for a sub-set of the registry.

Access to the twin registry is open to all researchers for research to benefit everyone.

Twins Research Australia’s collaborative networks extend to research groups nationally and internationally. In addition, more than 340 researchers have used the registry over the last 35 years which has enabled the twin design to be applied to a broad range of research areas including; musculoskeletal conditions, teeth, childhood pain disorders, epilepsy, educational outcomes, dementia, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and eating disorders.

Each quarter, Twins Research Australia produces a Researcher eNews bulletin showcasing interesting twin reseach being carried with twin data.  You can sign up to receive the eNews below.
