The research carried out by the Netherlands Twin Register is aimed at the role of heritability in mental and physical health. 

For instance, the NTR does research into the reason or reasons why some people become more easily depressed than others, or why certain people get diabetes while others never become diabetics.

Other research areas concern lifestyles and habits that influence health and disease, such as smoking, drinking and exercise.

On these pages you will find an overview of the national and international collaborations the NTR participates in, some of our current research projects and past projects (the last two links are mainly in Dutch). 

The results of our research are published in several types of publications: these papers, dissertations and more can be found here.
