on cell and molecular signaling sparks negotiations with several pharmaceutical companies interested in using their discovery for possible development of new drugs for strokes, heart attacks, other disorders.
Example: his call for new $141 MM Kakaako facility to jointly house both rescued doc school and greatly expanded UH biomedical research program currently centered primarily around two JABSOM affiliates, the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, (CRCH) and the Pacific Biomedical Research Center (PBRC); But he also let's you know he's not sitting back expecting taxpayer to foot full cost of his dream, has well-thought out plan to also chase down research grants, gifts, big donors, forge alliances with biotech industry partners prepared to put up money for right to get inside track on UH biotech research.
We're already capturing about $32 million a year in research grants between JABSOM, PBRC and CRCH.
