Date:12/30/2010

Salt Lake City, December 30, 2010Officials at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah announced that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has renewed its prestigious designation as a Cancer Center.

"I am tremendously proud of the physicians, scientists, and administrative staff at HCI that have made this renewal possible," says Jon M. Huntsman, HCI's founding benefactor.

HCI received the strongest rating in its history and was ranked in the "High Impact" category."

The NCI designation recognizes the pivotal role of research in the development of improvements in cancer detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention and is reserved only for Cancer Centers that achieve the highest standards of excellence in cancer research. HCI received the prestigious NCI designation following a rigorous scientific review and evaluation of performance and expertise in several essential elements, including the quality and impact of the Center's cancer research, the availability of state-of-the art research and patient care facilities, experienced scientific leadership, and the level of collaboration and translation of science to innovative cancer care.

HCI's research excellence has been made possible by generous support of the Huntsman family and the Huntsman Cancer Foundation which supports HCI's research mission via philanthropic contributions. An outstanding ten-member External Advisory Board provides pla
