Welcome to the International Society for Twin Studies!

The International Society for Twin Studies (ISTS) wants to further research and public education in all fields related to twins and twin studies, for the mutual benefit of twins and their families and of scientific research in general. The Society was founded in Rome in 1974 and is an international, nonpolitical, nonprofit, multidisciplinary scientific organization.
The journal of the Society, Twin Research and Human Genetics, covers all areas of human genetics with an emphasis on twin studies, heritability, genetic epidemiology, psychiatric and behavioral genetics, and research on multiple birth in the field of epidemiology, genetics, endocrinology, fetal pathology,  obstetrics and pediatrics.

Save the date! Join us in Madrid in November 2017.

The next congress of ISTS will take place in Madrid, Spain from Thursday 16th November to Saturday 18th November 2017. This will be the third time that we organise a joint congress with the World Congress on Twin Pregnancy. The last meetings have been very successful, attendants from all over the world enjoyed a full and varied program. It is sure to be a memorable event again. Don’t miss it!
