Our Mission

Our mission is parallel and aligned with the UH Cancer Center, to reduce the burden of cancer in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands by:

  • accurately identifying those at high risk of cancer
  • reducing cancer risk through novel interventions
  • early detection of cancers in their most treatable and survivable state.

The AI PHI seeks to fulfill this mission by:

  • validating AI cancer risk and detection models in our population with its unique ethnic and cultural qualities
  • develop AI models using data from our region when other models are found to be inadequate
  • supporting the use of AI in our region for cancer-related projects by offering pilot project funding
  • provide technical support and physical resources to students and faculty to accomplish their pilot projects
  • collaborate with academic and industry partners that support our mission.
