The Medical Research Program supports clinical and basic research in a variety of areas determined by the source of funding. For specific areas of research refer to the Funding Opportunity.

The Hawai‘i Community Foundation’s (HCF) Medical Research program makes grants annually to support basic and clinical research conducted in Hawai‘i. The overall goal of the program is to support a robust local medical research community that benefits the people of Hawai‘i. The areas of research include, but are not limited to: cancer, diseases related to aging, heart disease, immunology, genetics, type I diabetes, and blindness prevention. The program also supports research infrastructure to increase research capacity. The Medical Research program is supported by several funders including: the George F. Straub Trust, the Victoria S. and Bradley L. Geist Foundation, and other multiple funds at HCF.
