The Michigan Twins Project (MTP) and Children of Twins Project (COT) compose a large, population-based twin registry consisting of twins between the ages of 3-55 born in Michigan. Adult twins and parents of twin children complete and return a brief questionnaire that assesses family composition and health status. The unique relationship twins share allows for a better understanding of the environmental, genetic and neurobiological factors that influence psychological functioning and health. Because of this, data from the MTP and COT will contribute to research on a variety of conditions that carry significant consequences for individual and public health. These related studies are directed by Drs. S. Alexandra Burt and Kelly Klump.
Applicants should have a minimum GPA of 3.2 and be able to commit to working 10 hours in the lab for at least one year (Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters).
