“Twins Research Australia, in my opinion, fulfils its mandate expertly. It understands the needs of researchers, and has the right tools to assist them.”

“TRA was invaluable to our project. At the most basic level, TRA's existence made possible the collection of the entirely of the data analysed in our study. On a deeper level, TRA had the tools on hand to assist with the proper and rigorous analysis of this data.”

“I would like to thank Twins Research Australia for awarding me the Australian Centre of Excellence in Twin Research Travel Grant Scheme that supported my attendance at the International Congress of Twin Studies (ICTS) satellite meeting, the Behavior Genetics Association (BGA) annual meeting and its pre-conference OpenMx workshop.”

“Attendance of these two international meetings provided me with great learning and networking opportunities. It also allowed me to present my work and made my research more widely known by other researchers in the field. The OpenMx workshop equipped me with enough knowledge and confidence to move from class Mx to OpenMx. I cannot wait to start my next project using this new tool.”
