Program support

The Disease-Oriented Research Team (DOT) approach to research and patient care is an innovative, highly collaborative, and integrated model for cancer research and care championed by Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). HCI is a leader in this team approach, and is being emulated by other cancer centers throughout the United States and world.

The DOT protocol brings together all of the researchers, physicians, and care providers involved in specific areas of cancer into a functioning, working team. Some of these DOTs include:

  • Genitourinary – cancers of the urinary tract and male genital tract
  • Gastrointestinal – cancers of the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, small bowel, colon, appendix, and rectum
  • Hematologic Malignancies – cancers of the blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, including lymphomas and leukemias
  • Melanoma – skin cancers
  • Neuro-Oncology – cancers of the brain, spinal cord, and skull
  • Pancreatic - cancer of the pancreas
  • Sarcoma – cancers of the soft tissue and bone tumors
  • Women’s Cancers – cancers of the female reproductive tract, including ovarian, endometrial/uterine, cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancer, as well as breast cancers
  • Upper Aero Digestive Tract - cancers of the head/neck and lung

Children’s and Families’ Research Expansion

The Primary Children’s & Families’ Cancer Research Center at Huntsman Cancer Institute opens its doors on a 220,000 sq. ft. expansion in late 2016, the combined research space with that of its flagship, Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) will be almost one mile of linear research bench space.

This new addition will be named in honor of one of the principal donors of the expansion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and reflects the LDS church’s historical emphasis on children and families.
