Park City’s Cancer Center
Every year, and average of 1,000 people in Summit County arrive at Huntsman Cancer Institute for treatment-- radiation, chemotherapy, surgery-- looking for a clear way ahead.
Did you know that Utah is uniquely positioned to unlock critical secrets about cancer that will be key to eradicating this disease from the face of the earth? Admittedly, it sounds like something from a science fiction novel. But the opportunity is here and the time is now.
Sequencing the first genome took over a decade and cost more than $3 billion. Today, it can be done for a few thousand dollars in a matter of hours. Although this technology is employed every day in the labs at
Huntsman Cancer Institute, many cancer research centers around the world now have this capability as well. So technology alone is not what gives Utah and the Huntsman Cancer Institute such a special opportunity.
The unique opportunity at Huntsman Cancer Institute is the ability to combine the power of the new sequencing technologies with the largest genetics database in the world, right down the hill from Park City.
Utah researchers have already used these unparalleled assets to identify genetic mutations that cause breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, melanoma and many others. Indeed, more inherited human disease genes have been discovered in Utah than anywhere else in the world. These discoveries have saved – and continue to save – countless lives. The next step – and it’s a critical one – is to expand the research capabilities at Huntsman Cancer Institute to capitalize on current strengths and seize the astonishing opportunities that are now available in cancer research. Thank you for investing in cancer research in our community by donating today. Park City residents depend on Huntsman Cancer Institute every day.
