Chronic Disease Research Foundation (CDRF)

The Chronic Disease Research Foundation (CDRF) was established to look at new ways of exploring the genetics of diseases associated with ageing. Its mission is to target those common diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis, back pain, migraine, asthma and diabetes, inherited from our parents, and prevent and alleviate them now and for future generations. Its principal focus is on comparative studies of identical and non-identical twins, undertaken at the Twin Research Unit of St Thomas' Hospital.
