Jaakko received his PhD at the University of Helsinki, Finland. He did his postdoctoral work at Yale University School of Medicine, USA. From 1987-1992 he worked as a group leader at Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm. From 1993-1998 he worked as a Research Fellow at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. In 1998 he took up a position as a Professor at the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology.
His group is working on the functional organisation of the intermediate compartment, a membrane system operating between the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi complex.
