The research committee received several applications from Finland, Sweden, and Denmark, and the proposed research projects were found to be in general of high-quality and research objectives were considered clinically and scientifically relevant. A few projects included Nordic collaboration.

The following two Nordic applicants and PhD-research projects were selected as grant recipients Dec. 8th, 2020:

Kristina Viiklepp (Finland): Classical pathway of complement system in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
