This morning, we at the Center for Colon Cancer Research were deeply saddened to learn about the loss of a beloved colleague and friend, Dr. Raja Fayad. Dr. Fayad began collaborating with researchers at the Center upon his arrival in the USC 's Department of Exercise Science in 2008. His research, which focused on inflammation and colon cancer, held great promise in helping to prevent and treat disease. Dr. Fayad was highly respected by his colleagues and students in the research laboratory as well as in the classroom. His gentle and patient demeanor complemented a sharp intellect and passion for science. The Center offers its deepest sympathies to the family, friends, colleagues, and students of Dr. Fayad. We will all miss him.

The Center for Colon Cancer Research (CCCR) at the University of South Carolina is leading the development of innovative and groundbreaking research in colorectal cancer. One of the primary goals of the CCCR is to foster the progression of young scientists, and we are seeking undergraduate students to participate in research internships in a cancer-related field (e.g., biological sciences, pharmacy, public health). During the summer of 2015, a CCCR Summer Undergraduate Minority Research Program will be inaugurated.
