Review: Huntsman Cancer InstituteCancer Websites, Hospitals — By nygal on December 4, 2008 at 2:31 pm
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. Each cancer patient is a unique human being – not a statistic.
Huntsman Cancer Institute’s mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
This mission combines groundbreaking research and state-of-the art patient care with the offering of hope and support for cancer patients and their families. Their teams of research scientists, medical professionals, and cancer educators are working to understand cancer, improve treatments, and help patients fight their disease.
Former Huntsman Cancer Foundation President, Jon Huntsman, Jr., explains, “It is the goal of Huntsman Cancer Institute to become a symbol of hope and optimism. We want those carrying the heavy burden of cancer to feel strengthened and hopeful.”
