@.ppreciate the honor of presenting the Faculty Research Lecture for 1954. In preparing this review I have drawn freely on the ideas and data of my colleagues, often without proper credit. Several of my associates both at the University of Utah and the Utah State Agricultural College have read the manuscript and made valuable suggestions. To all who have aided me directly or indirectly, I express my deep appreciation.
The research on human cancer was conducted through the Laboratory of Human Genetics, University of Utah, with the cooperation of Dr. F. E. Stephens, Dr. Charles M. Woolf, Dr. Ralph C. Richards, and several staff members of the Salt Lake General Hospital. Members of a large number of Utah families and their physicians have cooperated in the study. The project has been supported financially by the United States Public Health Service.
The fruit fly research was initiated at the University of Utah in 1946, when the author was a staff member at that institution, as a joint project with Dr. W. W. Newby. It was supported in its initial stages by the University of Utah Research Fund. The project has been continued since 1949 at the Utah State Agricultural College with the support of the Damon Runyon Memorial Fund, American Cancer Society, through the recommendation of the Committee on Growth, National Research Council, and the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station.
