Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) is part of the University of Utah Health Care system. We serve cancer patients throughout the Intermountain West and provide academic and clinical training for future physicians and researchers.
Hope through Research: Our scientists focus on understanding cancer from its beginnings to create safer, more effective treatments. Researchers also study how genes function to look for ways to prevent or even reverse genetic changes that cause cancer.
Hope through Education: We provide free, expert and accurate information about cancers, risk factors, screening, prevention, and treatments to patients, family members, caregivers, physicians, and the public.
Hope through Patient Care: Our teams of doctors and health care professionals work together to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care.
