  On October 14, 2006, two pigs and a gator
joined forces to beat cancer.
   Thanks to our generous supporters and
raffle participants, our John Deere Gator
Raffle was a huge success! The 250 people in
attendance feasted on an old-fashioned
Missouri barbecue and a good time was had
by all. Jim Cherrington won the Gator and
CRC raised more than $5,000.
  This event would not have been possible
without Farm Power Lawn & Leisure, Bruce
Wilson, Garry Banks, Joel Halley, and all our
generous raffle participants. Thanks for all
you do!

            CANCER FACT
      Cancer can occur at any age.
  Since incidence rises with age, however,
  most cases affect adults in midlife or
  beyond. Among children ages 1–14 years,
  cancer causes more deaths in the United
  States than any other disease. Join CRC in
  our fight against cancer by remembering a
  loved one with a donation this year.

 “My work in Dr. Eisenstark’s laboratory was an exceptional introduc-
              tion to the biological laboratory setting...”
                                                      —Cathy Miller, PhD and former CRC scholar
    The Cancer Research Center, in conjunction with its research mission, engages students in
order to enhance their scientific backgrounds. There are several support categories, depend-
ing upon other academic arrangements.
    1. Students can gain experience at CRC while earning undergraduate credit at University of
Missouri-Columbia or other local colleges. Students are assigned a semester project. For each
hour of credit, the student is expected to be in the laboratory approximately three hours per
week. A term paper is submitted at the end of the semester. Since it may be necessary to have
a car, CRC provides $100 compensation for each of four months per semester.
    For additional compensation, students are encouraged to apply for scholarship funds. UMC
students should contact Linda Blockus, Tucker Hall. Preference is given to students who have
applied for scholarship funds.
    If an arrangement is made to have the student work additional hours in the laboratory,
the student is compensated $8 per hour for the additional hours.
    2. If a student desires an intern arrangement without college credit, CRC has limited schol-
arship funds for this. The student should submit a resume to the CRC’s Research Director,
including a list of college science courses. The stipend for this type of internship is usually
$800 for the semester. Again, preference is given to students who have applied for scholar-
ship funds.
    3. As grants are obtained, CRC may employ technicians who have backgrounds in
Microbiology and Biochemistry.
    4. CRC also welcomes graduate students to perform rotations in our laboratory. In such
cases, since it will be necessary to have a car, CRC will provide $100 compensation for each of
four months per semester.

 Freese Memorial Fellowship
                                      Raymond Freese, a local builder, developer, and president of
                                      Boone County Lumber Company, was a member of the CRC
                                      Board of Trustees for 21 years, beginning in 1973. He worked
                                      tirelessly to secure funding and support for various CRC projects
                                      and was especially devoted to the CRC Gala. Ray lost his sister
                                      and several close friends to cancer and decided to do what he
                                      could to fight this lethal disease. Unfortunately, he lost his own
                                      battle with cancer in 1994. After his death, the CRC Board of
                                      Trustees set up the Raymond W. Freese Memorial Fellowship.
                                      This fellowship is awarded to promising postdoctoral scientists
                                      for an initial one-year appointment, with reappointment for
                                      additional years based on performance. The stipend is compara-
                                      ble to those awarded by the Health Sciences Center at the
                                      University of Missouri-Columbia. The major research project is
                                      prostate tumor therapy with genetically altered Salmonella.
                                      Applicants are expected to have (1) expertise in molecular genet-
ics of bacteria, (2) willingness to develop a mouse testing model, (3) skills in writing grant proposals
and manuscripts, (4) skills in presenting research results at national meetings, and (5) skills to develop
projects independently and creatively.
