At a time of deep cuts in federal research funding, the University of Utah’s Huntsman Cancer Institute on Friday announced plans to double its research space and devote more resources to studying childhood cancer.
Billionaire industrialist Jon M. Huntsman, the hospital’s founder and principal benefactor, unveiled plans for the 220,000-square-foot addition during a gala at the Grand America hotel. The Huntsman family is funding roughly half of the $100 million project.
