HCI is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Designated Cancer Center, which means it meets the highest standards for cancer care and research and receives support for its scientific endeavors. Learn more about our Cancer Center Research Programs. HCI is also a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), a not-for-profit alliance of the world’s leading cancer centers. NCCN is dedicated to improving the quality and effectiveness of care provided to patients with cancer. The Utah Regional Cancer Center received its NCI designation as a cancer center in 1986. The Center was renamed Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) in 1999. Located at the University of Utah, HCI’s mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of new treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care. Hope Through Research: HCI scientists focus on understanding cancer from its beginnings to create safer and more effective treatments. Researchers also investigate how genes function to discover possible methods of preventing, circumventing, or even reversing the genetic changes that cause cancer. Hope Through Education: HCI offers free information about cancers, risk factors, screening, prevention, and treatments to patients, family members, physicians, and the public. Hope Through Care: At HCI, teams of doctors and health care professionals work together to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care
