Child Emotion Center/Arizona Twin Project

Zone D: Tempe campus

Within the Arizona Twin Project, Dr. Kathryn Lemery-Chalfant, Dr. Leah Doane and Dr. Mary Davis, along with many collaborators, are conducting two overarching studies. One focuses on the genetic and environmental influences on sleep and other biological factors, while the second focuses on physical health and the intergenerational transmission of pain. Utilizing a twin sample allows researchers to disentangle the genetic and environmental contributions on a particular trait. Further, having a highly diverse sample affords us the opportunity to consider the impact of acculturation, as well as the interplay between culture and genetics.
