Office of Research and Development

For more than 160 years, Queen’s has been on the cutting edge of advancements in health care. That’s one reason why the people of Hawai‘i and the Pacific Basin have entrusted us with their care. We have a legacy that is deeply woven into the culture of our communities – one of compassion, aloha, respect and excellence.

Queen’s is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and all of the people of Hawai‘i by engaging in groundbreaking research.

We will accomplish this mission through education, research and professional development by creating novel approaches to improve patient outcomes and care delivery, become a national leader in reducing health inequities among Native Hawaiians, and empowering individuals and communities by engaging in bi-directional learning. Our service is extended in the spirt of aloha as guided by the vision and ideals of our founders Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV.
