Spotlight on the Gemini Team:

Dr Clare Llewellyn Dr Clare Llewellyn:
Hi I'm Clare! I'm a Psychologist by background, with an MSc and PhD in Health Psychology from UCL, and am a Lecturer in Cancer Research UK's Health Behaviour Research Centre. I helped Professor Jane Wardle set Gemini up in 2007, have worked on it ever since, and currently lead the study. I'm interested in using twins to understand how genes and the environment work together to shape the development of appetite and weight in early life. It has been an immense privilege to have been involved in Gemini since the start, and to watch the major scientific advances that have been achieved with the help of the Gemini families. The study still excites me now, and I hopes to be able to work on Gemini for many more years.
