Hawai‘i Business Magazine names Hawaiian Health’s Alika Maunakea one of 20 Leaders to Watch
Hawai‘i Business Magazine recognizes Dr. Alika Maunakea “as an emerging leader who has already made major contributions to Hawai‘i and whom we expect to have an even greater impact over the next two decades.” Maunakea is an epigeneticist who studies the molecular interaction between the environment and genes, and how changes in this interaction affect diseases that disproportionally affect the Native Hawaiian population. A graduate of the Kamehameha Schools, he studied at Creighton University and completed graduate school at the University of California San Francisco before working at the National Institutes of Health.
