TwinsUK Data/Samples Access and Collaborations

The Department of Twin Research provides access to TwinsUK data and material to the world scientific community to advance scientific research and generate new ideas and knowledge.

TwinsUK is the biggest UK adult registry of twins in the United Kingdom, aged 18 to 100 to study the genetic and environmental aetiology of age-related complex traits and diseases.

The cohort provides a detailed collection of physical, physiological, behavioural and lifestyle data on more than 11,000 twins.

A summary of the TwinsUK cohort is available on the HDRUK Gateway. Click here to browse the gateway.

Access to the data is managed via the TwinsUK Resource Executive Committee, who meets monthly to discuss data access requests.

Access to existing and new data will be subject to costs. For information visit our Cost section.
