RMATRIX-II stands for the second phase of the Research Multidisciplinary And Translational Research Infrastructure Expansion project at the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

RMATRIX-II provides the infrastructure needed to build translational research synergy, foster intra- and inter-institutional collaborations and partnerships, and build a community of investigators addressing health disparities in Hawaiʻi. Such research infrastructure is invaluable not only for addressing significant existing health disparities, but also for the development of skilled investigators from Hawaiʻi.

Services/resources include: · Pilot project funds that supports junior investigators that are conducting clinical and translational research. · Core infrastructure that includes support from biostatistics, regulatory knowledge, career development, community-based research, clinical research resources and facilities, educational opportunities and administrative services. · Workshops and mini-conferences focused on providing education and training in clinical and translational health disparities.
