TwinsUK to start COVID-19 research

20th March 2020

At TwinsUK we are making urgent preparations to set up a study to test and track twins for COVID-19 symptoms, caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The health data we have already collected and our committed participants means we are in a unique position to research this condition and join in the fight against COVID-19.

This study will be funded by King’s College London, charity CDRF, tech company Zoe Global Ltd and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Biomedical Research Centre, National Institute of Health Research.

We will be working in collaboration with a number of other research teams and organisations, including tech company ZOE Global Ltd, who are rapidly building an app that will enable us to track coronavirus symptoms in our twins, and King’s College London Professor Michael Malim’s group. We will also consult with the TwinsUK Volunteer Advisory Panel throughout.
