The Medical Research Council awards another five years' funding

We are delighted to announce that the UK Medical Research Council (MRC) has awarded another five-year programme grant to support TEDS from 2010 through to 2015. The grant was awarded on 4th December 2009, with many glowing reviews and testaments to the importance of the study, including "no other study internationally has been as influential in the field".

We'd like to say a huge "thank you" to all the twins and their families who have been making TEDS such a success over the last 15 years. This latest award means that the MRC has provided 20 years of continuous support for TEDS, a testament to the twins and their families who make TEDS possible and the quality of the research the study is producing.
