The FLARe study, involving around 3,000 twin pairs, ran from January to April 2019. There were two prizes draws, for twin pairs in which both twins had completed the activities correctly according to the instructions given in the phone app.

The TEDS21 study, involving all TEDS families, is nearly finished but still running. The study involves two parts, each with its own questionnaire, and both parts are still continuing. If you would like to participate in either part 1 or part 2 (or both!) but haven't received your invitation, please contact us! Although the final prize draw has now taken place, voucher rewards are still available for new participants.

The final prize draw for TEDS21, for twins who participated in both part 1 and part 2, took place on Monday 7th January 2019. 20 Amazon vouchers, worth £50 each, were given as prizes (see prize winner list below). Earlier prize draws for part 2 of TEDS21 took place on Monday 11th June 2018 and Friday 31st August 2018.
