The Peninsula Pre/Perinatal Twins Research Bank (PTRB) has been established to enable us to study how growth in the womb can influence health and disease across the life-course. Twins are ideal for this kind of study as they share a common genetic background, but often develop different health problems in later life. We are establishing a twin birth cohort in the South-West UK, tracking development through pregnancy and assessing biological variation at birth.
