A survivor of both mouth and prostate cancer, Jon Huntsman is personally committed to finding a cure for cancer and relieving the suffering it causes. After 25 years at the helm of a global chemical company, Huntsman established the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah with $100 million. Last year, he and his family donated another $125 million to help construct the Clinical Research Hospital adjacent to the institute's research facility. Today, the institute conducts cutting-edge cancer research, houses the largest genetic database in the world, and takes a unique team approach that could yield some of the most important scientific discoveries of our time.
