Margaret Gatz and Nancy Pedersen, PIs (HARMONY)

HARMONY is an international collaboration involving the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics and ARC at KI, the University of Gothenburg, and the University of Southern California. At baseline, 14,435 twins underwent a screening test, and 1,557 persons were clinically examined. Linkages with the national Patient Register and the Cause of Death Register are made on a regular basis, most recently with diagnoses through 2010.
