A twin research study from students at Regis University

Mission of the Project

RUaTwin is a research study of twins, being done by Rebecca Betjemann and her undergraduate students from the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at Regis University in Denver, CO. Our study is assessing topics including personality, religiosity and spirituality, altruism, empathy, political interest, opinions on groups, and social perspectives. 

 If you are a twin, we hope that you will volunteer your time to participate in our study! 

This study is done online, so adult twins from all over the U.S. can participate. 

We need a large number of twins to participate! Please consider sharing our study information. THANK YOU for your help! 

Why twins?

Twins are a really amazing natural experiment! We will compare data from identical and fraternal twin pairs to assess the genetic and environmental components involved in our research topics.

We need both twins!

We need both twins in a pair (or multiples) to do the study in order to use the data. So when you finish participating, we'll ask for ways to invite your twin to participate also.

How long will it take?

Our online study takes about 20 minutes to complete, it's all online, and you can do it at any time, on your own schedule.
