The University of Hawai‘i at Manoa has been awarded a $9.2 million
grant to support biomedical research, under the direction of The John A. Burns
School of Medicine’s faculty members Dr. Eric Holmes and Dr. David Haymer.
The new grant will include researchers and programs at UH Manoa, the University of Hawai‘i’s Kapi‘olani and Hawai‘i Community Colleges, the UH Hilo College of Pharmacy and at Chaminade University and Hawai‘i Pacific University.


The new grant will include researchers and programs at UH Manoa, the University of Hawai‘i’s Kapi‘olani and Hawai‘i Community Colleges, the UH Hilo College of Pharmacy and at Chaminade University and Hawai‘i Pacific University.

The goal of the three-year project is to build the research base at institutions by supporting researchers early in their careers, as they work toward becoming grant-eligible independent scientists.

There will be advanced training in bioinformatics and other computer-based research methods at the sites, and educational and training opportunities to interest undergraduate students statewide in biomedical careers.

UH was chosen because it is part of the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research
Excellence. (INBRE). Funding is through the NIH’s National Center of Research Resources.

“This is an exciting chance to create a unique synergy by bringing together talent from across multiple Hawai‘i institutions to address important and relevant biomedical research topics,” said Dr. Gary Ostrander, UH Manoa Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education.
