About the logo





The logo of the Center for Twin Research is an image of twins designed in leaves of the ginkgo tree, which is also the symbol of the Osaka University. The life span of the ginkgo tree is remarkably long – so long that its symbol in the language of flowers is ”longevity” – and the logo embodies the Center for Twin Research’s endeavor to bring about a happier and healthier longevity society through research of twins.
