huntsmanSALT LAKE CITY — Recruitment of nearly three dozen professionals, doubling in size and planning more expansion to accommodate even more research have the Huntsman Cancer Institute on top of its game. And that all happened in the past five years. Thursday, the local facility was given comprehensive cancer center status, the highest designation from the National Cancer Institute, an agency of the National Institutes of Health that oversees cancer research and treatment throughout the country. CEO Mary Beckerle called the new designation “a really big deal for all the people who live in this vast geographical region of our country.” Prior to Thursday’s announcement, she said, the nearest comprehensive-designated facility was either in Denver, Colorado, or on the California coast.
