The following resources and web-links will direct researchers and others to organizations associated with neuroscience research including some of our collaborators in Hawaii. Contact us if you would like to add a link to your organization on this web page.

University of Hawaii Neuroscience:

The University of Hawai'i at Manoa offers an opportunity for multidisciplinary graduate training in Neurosciences as a specialization of the Cell and Molecular Biology graduate program. Faculty from several UH departments, the John A. Burns School of Medicine, Queen's Medical Center, Pacific Health Research Institute, and Tripler Medical Center, represent an extremely diverse scope of neuroscience research interests, so that our students are ultimately able to study the areas of neuroscience that interest them.

NCRR-supported RCMI-CRC:

Through the Clinical Research Center’s (CRC) MR Core our research program provides clinical research infrastructure support, including nursing support, assistance with cultural competence, patient recruitment, data safety monitoring issues, and all other available resources.

RCMI logo R-supported Research Center Minority Institution (RCMI):

The RCMI institutional grant provides basic research infrastructure for investigators at UH. In fostering translational research growth, Dr. Thomas Ernst and Dr. Todd Reed (Department of Electrical Engineering) have proposed a biomedical engineering and image processing core, which will provide support to clinical investigators performing imaging research at UH.

Master’s and Interdisciplinary PhD in Clinical Research

The two JABSOM graduate programs (funded by the NCRR and NIGMS) trains future research investigators, including junior staff in the Neuroscience and MR Research Program.

Pacific Health Research and Education Institute (PHREI):

Affiliated with JABSOM and conducting research outside the university, PHREI collaborates with the Honolulu Asia Aging Study at Kuakini Medical Center, a study which has been following the Honolulu Heart Study Cohort since the 1960’s. One of their recent research focuses is on brain changes associated with aging.

Society for Neuroscience

This organization’s mission is to advance the understanding of the brain and the nervous system, provide professional development to neuroscientists, promote general education of the latest neuroscience research including informing legislators and policymakers.

American Academy of Neurology

AAN provides valuable resources to researchers in the area of neurological diseases.
