Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) is one of only 47 cancer centers in the country designated as a “Comprehensive Cancer Center” by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).  Receiving an NCI designation means that HCI is among the top 4% of the ~1500 cancer centers in the country.  The comprehensive cancer center designation recognizes not only the outstanding cancer research, training, and public outreach programs that have long been conducted at HCI, but acknowledges the exceptional depth and breadth of HCI research in each of the three major cancer research areas: laboratory, clinical and population-based research. The designation also recognizes HCI for the impact of its research findings on national cancer care guidelines and improved patient outcomes.


The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), a not-for-profit alliance of 27 of the world’s leading cancer centers, is dedicated to improving the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of care for patients with cancer. Through the leadership and expertise of clinical professionals at NCCN Member Institutions, NCCN develops resources that present valuable information to the numerous stakeholders in the health care delivery system.
