Our team includes staff and faculty from across Huntsman Cancer Institute and University of Utah Health, who work together to provide training across the basic science, population science, and clinical research arenas. We work closely with Huntsman Cancer Institute's Community Outreach & Engagement and Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion teams to align our efforts in our various education programs. HCI provides an educational foundation that supports cancer researchers as they generate insights to prevent, treat, and reduce cancer health disparities.
