ColoCare is a research study of patients newly diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer. We are a team of researchers, medical doctors, nurses, and patients working together to learn more about improving health after a cancer diagnosis.
 FLARE Study FLARE Study - Family Lifestyles, Actions, and Risk Education
Children from families who have a history of melanoma can protect their skin by learning healthy habits early in life. It can be a challenge to always carry out healthy skin protection habits such as wearing sunscreen. The FLARE Study aims to make it easier for kids and families at higher risk of melanoma to take action and protect themselves.

Ewing sarcoma is the second most common bone cancer in children and young adults, but we know very little about why people get it. Project GenESis is one of the first studies to try to find out.
 Project MERIT Project MERIT
The Project MERIT study is to develop new educational materials that provide information about melanoma risk and prevention to children and their families.

Total Cancer Care

At Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), health care providers and researchers seek to know how and why cancer develops and to find ways to better understand, detect, treat, and prevent it. Together, we want to improve care and quality of life for people affected by cancer and save lives now and in the future.

Utah Cancer Survivors Study

The Utah Cancer Survivors Study helps us learn about the long-term health effects and quality of life people with cancer experience. It also investigates whether cancer survivors have higher risks of certain diseases because of cancer treatment.
