The Pacific Biosciences Research Center seeks excellence in interdisciplinary biological research by fostering independent and original work and by training future academic leaders through education and research.
To achieve this mission, PBRC will:
- Promote cross-disciplinary research initiatives and foster development of areas of excellence focused on the unique plant and animal species, marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and populations throughout the Pacific Basin.
- Integrate in all research activities training of researchers and students, with particular emphasis on promotion of diversity.
- Promote collaborations across disciplines at the University of Hawai’i, within the state of Hawaii and across national and international boundaries.
The activities of PBRC are guided by principles of sustainability with respect for Hawai’i’s culture, values and limited natural resources. It is the goal of PBRC to be a leader in Hawai’i and the Pacific in education and research.
