Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah is known for exemplary cancer care, cutting-edge research, and top-notch training throughout Utah and the surrounding region. An obstacle for patients and their loved ones is often distance from Salt Lake City.
Bringing hope and healing even closer to more communities
Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in Utah and the Mountain West region. Nearly half of all people will experience a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Cancer touches us all. And it takes all communities to improve early detection rates through screening as well as treatment outcomes through advanced techniques and technologies. The Huntsman Cancer Institute Vineyard campus opens new possibilities for cancer research, prevention, and treatments.
“We call this 'Project Unite,' as it is truly a partnership, collaboration, team, and commitment of all of us together, linking arms to improve the health of our communities and deliver a cancer-free frontier.”
Mary Beckerle, PhD
CEO of Huntsman Cancer Institute
