The Children of TEDS Study (CoTEDS)

As TEDS twins become adults, increasing numbers will also become parents. More than 20 years since the twins were first enrolled as infants by their parents, we are excited to invite the twins to enrol in TEDS again - but this time as the parents!

TEDS have launched a new study called Children of TEDS, or CoTEDS for short 

The aim of CoTEDS is to collect data on the development of the TEDS twins’ children. This will make TEDS the world’s first ever twin study to include information on both twin parents and their offspring from birth. We will be able to compare old data on the TEDS twins to that of their children, who will be the age that their parents were when they took the tests. This will provide a unique opportunity to examine how different behaviours and traits are passed down through generations, with reference to the influence of both genes and the environment. We will also be able to study the roles that parents play in their child’s development.

Three generations: TEDS twins Jonathan and Catherine with their parents and their children (two of which are also twins!)

If you are a parent, or will soon become a parent, we would love it if you and your child/children would take part in CoTEDS. We would also very much like to invite the original TEDS parents to enrol onto CoTEDS, as grandparents!

It doesn’t matter how much or how little you have been involved in TEDS in the past. This is a new opportunity to be involved in important, ground-breaking research.
