Short description

Physicians and scientists at Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah realize that the best way to make improvements in cancer treatments, cures, detection, and prevention is to understand cancer at a molecular and genetic level. The University of Utah has long been a leader in the study of human genetics, which set the stage for the establishment of Huntsman Cancer Institute, where researchers are working to more fully understand the process of cancer and devise new ways to treat it - especially on an individualized basis. This approach, based on genetic knowledge, is the present and future of cancer care. We know that each cancer patient is a unique human being - not a statistic.
