TwinsUK at National Twin Day UK

TwinsUK researchers, Kirsten Ward and Sarah Metrustry talked about the work of carried out by TwinsUK at the National Twin Day UK 2014 at Wicksteed Park on Saturday 13th September. The event was successfully organised by the Twins Gift Company and brought twins of all ages and their families together for a day of fun and activities, and a chance to learn about the wonderful contribution twin research has made to health research.

Kirsten and Sarah supported by Lynn Cherkas presented a general overview on the main areas of our research (genomic, epigenomic, metabolomic and microbiome) and explained how twins can contribute to science and what a twin research visit entails. TwinsUK also exhibited a stand during the day and the researchers were available to answer questions throughout the day.

The event and our presentations were very well received with lots of twins and parents asking the Twins Gift Company and us to repeat this event next year.

Thank you to the Twins Gift Company for inviting TwinsUK to be part of such a great day!
