Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience (HPN) robust clinical and academic clinical and translational research programs is on the forefront of working with some of the top agencies in the world including NIH, biomedical organizations to better understand and develop innovative treatments for some of the most challenging neurological diseases of our times.
We believe Hawaii can play an important role in reducing the disparity in minority participation & engagement in clinical trials or research especially for minority groups as defined by NIH National Institute on Minority Health & Health Disparities (NIMHD) –
Our Clinical Research Research (CRC) is fully staffed with full time investigators and credentialed, experienced, and qualified research raters and staff. The CRC is a highly sought after site and has a national reputation for successful completion and recruitment including rapid site start up. The CRC has successfully completed over 100 phase 0, I, II, III and IV clinical trials in various neurological conditions.
The Brain Research, Innovation and Translation Labs (BRITL) fosters collaboration, bench to bedside translation between departments, centers, institutions, and outside organizations. Our faculty also mentors aspiring residents, medical students & select graduate and undergraduate students in their work and labs under the “BRITL Neuroscience Scholar Program” each year. They work in groups and at times, will involve undergraduate students during the Hawaii Neuroscience Summer Internship Program (SIP).

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience is recognized nationally for our work in neuroscience conducted at the Clinical Research Center (link) and BRITL (Brain Research, Innovation & Translation Labs). HPN’s robust clinical and academic research programs fosters a culture of innovation and collaboration. Physicians and scientists work closely within and across centers, institutes and schools to collaborate whether they are basic laboratory based scientists, bio statisticians or clinicians to encourage cross disciplinary translation bench to bedside research.
Our doctors and researchers strive to bring the latest and most innovative research developments and clinical therapeutic trials to patients in Hawaii with neurological problems so they do not have to travel to far away places to seek these ground breaking research treatment options. Every year, over 50 active research projects are underway at our Clinical Research Center or BRITL conducted by world class physicians, scientists, fellows, residents, medical, graduate and other students with the goal to improve patient care in Hawaii. HPN patients benefit from not just the latest treatment modalities at the various neuroscience centers of excellence but also clinicians and researchers working together to bring advance innovations and novel therapeutic options to them.
