Epigenetics of Hypertension

Full Study Title: Epigenetics of Hypertension


Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin are studying what kind of modifications to one’s genetic code would lead to high blood pressure. We are looking to enroll identical twins who would have same genetic code, however, with different levels of blood pressure. This would allow us to study what sort of modifications to genetic code could lead to disease.

Participant Eligibility

Must be over 18 years of age and an identical twin by self report. Both twins should be able to participate.
