Duration: 14 m        Workload: 100%
Duties: The project will investigate a novel approach to gene environment interaction using genome-wide genetic data in identical (monozygotic, MZ) twins. As they are genetically identical, differences within MZ twin-pairs on a measured outcome such as depression or anxiety are considered to be the result of the environment.

We recently successfully piloted this approach and aim build on this work by establishing the Genetics of Sensitivity to the Environment Consortium bringing together the world’s twins with genetic data
