Budget gap looms over Hawaii medical school, cancer center - Associated Press

The University of Hawaii at Manoa medical school could lose its accreditation and its cancer center could no longer have its designation as a federal research center if the university isn’t able to plug a $13 million budget hole, a report and business plan for the institutions has warned. The plan says getting funding from the state would be the “most cost-effective” way to address the situation, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser ( ) reported. The university’s Cancer Center is one of 68 National Cancer Institute-designated centers in the country. This status makes the school eligible to receive research funds from the federal agency.
