Our people

At Twins Research Australia, collaboration is central to all that we do. This ensures we contribute in the most effective way possible to generating new knowledge to medical research.

As Australia’s only Centre of Research Excellence in Twin Research (funded by the Federal Government’s National Health and Medical Research Council), we have a globally-renown team of experts that support our work. We also benefit from being a part of the broader education, research and teaching environment of the world-leading University of Melbourne.

Twins Research Australia comprises a leadership team of a Director, Two Deputy Directors, Chief Investigators and Associate Directors from institutes around Australia; supported by a management team; and overseen by an Advisory Board. See our organisational structure.

Our passionate staff, leadership team, board members, and collaborators work in fields as diverse as research, public health, medicine, allied healthcare, law and ethics, population statistics, information technology, education, health promotion, administration, communications, marketing, finance, policy and advocacy.
