About HPN

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience’s unique, fully integrated care model allows our specialists to provide evidenced based care, closely measure quality and outcomes on a continual basis on our more than 20,000 unique patient database and enhance our ability to conduct research.  It also allow our patients to better access the care they need through specialized multidisciplinary, disease specific centers that integrate the expertise of different specialists into the comprehensive and holistic care of an individual patient.

Research

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.
