Twin research comes of age

Tim Spector, Director of TwinsUK and some of our twins took part in a photo call today to celebrate the 21 year anniversary of TwinsUK.

The Department of Twin Research at King’s College London, based at St Thomas’ Hospital, celebrates 21 years of genetic research this week, highlighting key achievements and looking to the future of genetic research. The Department will celebrate this milestone with an event at St Thomas’ Hospital in London this weekend, where hundreds of twins will take part in scientific experiments for research into pain, short-sightedness, hearing loss, skin ageing and telepathy.

Thank you to the many thousands of our twins that have helped us with the research over the years.
