The next workshop will be held in Boulder, Colorado, March 2 – 6, 2009, with John Hewitt as local host. Pak Sham serves as the Academic Director for the workshop and is joined by approximately a dozen outstanding faculty from universities around the world.
This advanced course is intended for those who have attended earlier workshops and/or who are already familiar with the statistical and genetic principles for studying univariate and multivariate twin and family data.

The Twin Workshop will once again be held at the Millennium Harvest House Hotel in Boulder. Information on room rates will be provided as it becomes available.
