Dr. Fukui’s Mini-Bio/Research Focus:

Dr. Fukui is an Associate Professor at the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center. Her interests are in breast cancer clinical and translational research, developing clinical trial protocols, and providing cancer care to residents of Hawaiʻi.

Tumor microenvironment
Characterizing the tumor microenvironment (TME) has led to novel therapies in cancer treatment. Within the TME, tumor infiltrating lymphocytes are both predictive of therapy response and prognostic in breast cancer. Evaluating these immune cells can inform clinicians and their patients of potential therapy options and overall outcomes.
Racial/ethnic disparities in breast cancer treatment and outcomes
Hawaiʻi has one of the highest incidence of breast cancer cases in the U.S. There are accompanying differences in breast cancer mortality according to racial/ethnic group. Evaluating disparities in cancer treatment and coordinating quality improvement for breast cancer care within Hawaii can be achieved through clinical trials.
Lifestyle modification and symptom control in cancer survivors.
The role of lifestyle modification for prevention of primary breast cancer, secondary cancers and recurrence is an important adjunct to cancer care. Symptom control in cancer patients and survivors can improve therapy adherence and overall quality of life. Clinical trials with patient reported outcomes are increasingly important to capture multiple aspects of patient care.
