We are Australia’s only national twin research centre of excellence and recognised as a world leader in this field. We bring twins and researchers together to undertake health research to benefit everyone.
We are based at the University of Melbourne, and undertake and support twin research in institutes and hospitals across Australia and globally.
Twins and their families make our research possible by volunteering to join in studies. Today, over 80,000 twins are TRA members or around 11 percent of Australia’s entire twin population. We are one of the largest volunteer twin research registers in the world.
The impact of our research is wide-ranging and widespread. We have contributed to new insights, prevention and treatment for some of the most challenging health problems of our times.
