The INTR Data and Biospecimens Audit Project
The INTR is planning a comprehensive audit on twin data and biospecimens to support its objective to facilitate twin research globally, building on previous work conducted through the INTR by Prof. Wendy Cozen (California Twin Program) and A/Prof. Jeff Craig (Australian Twin Registry). It will include not only twin registries, but also twin studies, panels, projects and other similar resources. We are forming an international group of early and mid-career researchers involved in twin research and twin registries to facilitate the audit. The aim is to have at least one representative per country and the maximum number of countries involved as possible. This representative will facilitate the audit in his/her designated country but won’t be responsible for it alone. Senior researchers within the INTR will provide necessary institutional and mentoring support for this project.
If this is something you would like to be involved (either as an early-career researcher or as a twin registry or study/project/panel that would like to contribute to the project), please register here (if you haven't yet) to receive more information or email Lucas Ferreira at email@example.com if you have any questions.
