Research is an integral part of Shriners Hospitals for Children — Honolulu. Our mission is to conduct research that will ultimately improve the timely and complete recovery of children with orthopaedic conditions by enhancing and developing new therapeutic approaches for use during and following hospitalization.

Each fall, the hospital holds its Shriners Research `Aha (conference) for health care providers to better care for children with orthopaedic conditions through advances in science and research.
