Brand and Style Guide

At Huntsman Cancer Institute, we are dedicated—beyond a job, beyond a cause—because we not only conduct research and engage our community, we share hours with the people who live with cancer. Their dignity, care, and cure is personal to us. Each of their stories matter. We aim to carry the principle of excellence in all we do from the beauty of our buildings, to the personal touch given to each patient, to the very words we use to tell stories.

Our Brand and Style Guide reflects this commitment to excellence, authenticity, diligence, and inclusiveness. B-roll footage and our logo are available to journalists and media representatives. To request, please contact the public affairs team. Photos of Huntsman Cancer Institute are available to download at the University of Utah Image Library.
