50 Years of Progress in Cancer Research

The University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. The UH Cancer Center's mission is to reduce the burden of cancer through research, education and patient care and community outreach, focusing on and embracing the unique and diverse ethnic, cultural and environmental characteristics of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. The UH Cancer Center is a research organization within the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with facilities located in Kakaʻako. Our world-class cancer center building was completed in early 2013. The UH Cancer Center directly employs 300 faculty and staff, with another 200 affiliate members through the Hawaiʻi Cancer Consortium.
