Jaakko Kaprio awarded funding for NorTwinCan work

Dr. Jaakko Kaprio was awarded two grants in the past two years. He was selected to receive a Nordic Cancer Union grant, which will fund a postdoctoral fellow to expand the scope of research on NorTwinCan data to examine the underpinnings of the shared heritability of smoking and multiple cancers. In addition, the highly competitive Academy of Finland Research Professorship was awarded to Jaakko Kaprio for 2013-2017 in recognition of his scientific accomplishments and academic achievements. This professorship is accompanied by funding to carry out his research, one major component of which is NorTwinCan.
