Welcome to the website of the Hungarian Twin Registry! Currently, the voluntary Hungarian Twin Registry consists of more than 1000 adult twin pairs and multiplets. Current research focuses mainly on cardiovascular and respiratory health and yielded multiple awards and publications. Efforts are on the way to expand into social, psychological, and obesity studies.
