Posted: Updated:

KAKAAKO (HawaiiNewsNow) - UH Manoa announced Thursday that it will soon begin construction on the new cancer research center in Kakaako.

When completed in 2012, the $120 million project will consist of six floors, most of it devoted to research labs equipped with the latest technology.

The new center will be constructed next to the John A. Burns School of Medicine Building.

UH President Marci Greenwood says this project is an important milestone for the University, but even more so for the state.
