Richard Lowell Roudebush (January 18, 1918 – January 28, 1995) was a U.S. Representative from Indiana.

Born on a farm in Hamilton County, near Noblesville, Indiana, Roudebush attended Hamilton County schools. He graduated from Butler University, Indianapolis, in 1941. He served in the United States Army from November 18, 1941, to August 12, 1944, as a demolition specialist for the Ordnance Department in Middle Eastern, North African, and Italian campaigns. He was a farmer and a partner in a livestock commission company. He served as National Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in 1957-1958, and as chairman of the Indiana Veterans Commission from 1954 to 1960.

Representative Roudebush and other members of the House Committee on Science and Astronautics visit the Marshall Space Flight Center on March 9, 1962 to gather first-hand information of the nation's space exploration program.

Roudebush was elected as a Republican to the Eighty-seventh and to the four succeeding Congresses (January 3, 1961 – January 3, 1971). He was not a candidate in 1970 for reelection, but was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the United States Senate against incumbent Democrat Vance Hartke in the closest Senate election in Indiana history. He later served as the Administrator of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Administration from 1974 to 1977.

  • ✪ Indiana University Changing Lives through Research: Prostate Cancer
  • ✪ Flying High: Keith Roudebush
  • ✪ VA News 538-Week of May 13, 2013


[MUSIC] If prostate cancer is diagnosed early, it is 100% curable. [MUSIC] If it's diagnosed late, it can be 100% uncurable. >> They say there's no symptoms, so you don't really know, so I was hoping it wasn't cancer. But on the other hand, if it was, I wanted them to be able to do something about it. >> It is a disease that we have the ability to screen for currently using a blood test currently called PSA. This is not a very good test in the sense that it tells us something's going on in the prostate, but doesn't actually tell us what's going on in the prostate. >> They went in and did biopsy, and they had to put me on some more medicine, and they said let's see where this takes you. I'll be 68 next month, and I'm glad I did it because my dad died of cancer. So when I retired, I thought well I don't wanna be two years out and die because of something stupid. [MUSIC] >> There was a recent study that dogs can sniff urine and can tell whether the patient has prostate cancer or not. So the big question that we are exploring is is what is that smell? We collaborated with VA to get these urine samples. >> We work with the urology clinic and the veterans who are scheduled for biopsy are invited to join the study and donate urine before their biopsy. >> They said they were doing a study for IU. They told me that they were doing it for the dogs to be able to sniff out prostate cancer, kind of groundbreaking >> We are already collaborating with a dog trainer in town who trains medical dogs. The idea is to verify the signature that we identified in the lab with the dogs in the field. [MUSIC] >> We get our samples from Mangi and Amanda from IU. Once we have the samples, we present them to the dogs, and we teach our dogs to look for the specific sample that they need to detect. Everything is visually identical, and the dog only has the option to use his nose to find the sample. The way that we have taught the dogs to indicate that they have found a sample in a can is to maintain their head inside the can until we dispense the treat. >> Of course, we can do 100 things in the lab, and we can say this is the biomarker. If we know what signature it is and if we can verify that signature with a trained dog, then we feel that there will be a speedy acceptance of the results in the community. >> We go to the VA, we pick up the urine samples, we bring them back to the lab, and then we incubate them with a polymer-based fiber which is very good at collecting the scent of the urine on to the fiber because our noses are not as good as the dogs. >> So the end goal is have a prostate cancer sensor that can be used in a doctor's office to test prostate cancer in real time. Since it's noninvasive, it just needs urine sample. So once we have this sensor, the goal is to increase widespread screening. >> Work with sense is something that we're just on the beginning of understanding how important it is. In the the next ten years, we'll see a big explosion in this type of research. [MUSIC]
