Past research

Studies involving twins have covered just about every aspect of health and medical research in Australia.

The variety of studies are extraordinary and include: asthma, autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, dementia, male infertility, premenstrual tension, endometriosis, back pain, epilepsy, diabetes, teeth, heart disease, cancer, diet and stress, tobacco and alcohol use, eating disorders, myopia and blindness, glaucoma, reading ability, growing pains, and transition to school.

Here we highlight some of the recent results from research studies involving TRA and how twins are making a difference. If you were involved in a study recently, there may be some information about it below (in alphabetical order).

We are interested in feedback about your research experience. Please let us know if we are doing a good job or if we could improve in any areas. Our member satisfaction survey takes just five minutes to complete - thank you.
