Research Core

Director: Cecilia M. Shikuma

The primary goal of the Research Core is to support the research needs of the 2 research studies funded under this grant as well as to provide research assistance to junior and senior investigators affiliated with CNPHDR. The Research Core provides biostatistical support to CNPHDR researchers through an arrangement with the RMATRIX (RCMI Multidisciplinary And Translational Research Infrastructure eXpansion)’s Research Design and Biostatistics Key Function under the direction of Dr. John Chen. Research meetings open to all CNPHDR investigators are held throughout the year to serve as a forum to update researchers on new research findings and to brainstorm about research directions on metabolic health disparity in Hawaii and about new ideas for collaborative research in this area.
