We are bringing together specialists from ..., 27 Sept 2013 [cached]
We are bringing together specialists from all over the world and designing novel treatment options available to each patient so we can make this journey as smooth as possible and, when possible, eradicate tumors and cancer," said Dr. David S. Baskin, director of the Peak Center and vice chairman of the department of neurosurgery at Houston Methodist Hospital.
"The Peak Center will ... provide extraordinary, compassionate care, and any patient who wishes to be seen will be seen within 24 hours, seven days a week, and can talk directly with a senior physician any time of the day or night. There will be access to all research protocols for treatment available at other major tumor and cancer centers. In addition, there will always be at least three to five novel protocols not available elsewhere for patient participation."
Baskin said The Kenneth R. Peak Brain & Pituitary Tumor Treatment Center will have a number of scientists developing novel technology using nanoscale science and cell biology.... The center also will characterize each tumor in ways not being done anywhere else on a routine basis.
"We consider each patient to be unique, and know that each tumor has different genetic information and biological behaviors. The Peak Center will capitalize on these differences, starting with an initial $4 million commitment to research...," Baskin said.
"Many more advances are anticipated, which will be unique to the center. The center will play a major role in development of new and effective treatments for brain tumors that will be disseminated widely throughout the world," Baskin said.
It was explained that we would need many millions of dollars for such an enterprise, and he generously offered to give $10 million," Baskin said.
With this generous gift, this is already the case, and much more will be available in the coming months," Baskin said.

Dr. David Baskin, neurosurgeon at the Methodist NI, and his colleagues published these research findings in the March 2006 issue of BioTechniques.
Dr. Baskin and Vladimir Didenko, PhD used an enzyme to create a permanent bond to attach semi-conductor nanocrystals, or Q-dots, to nanotubes.
"By attaching these Q-dots like beads on a string, we have the potential to link tens, hundreds, thousands of these strings together, creating nanomachines that can act like probes, giving researchers a new view into cancer cells, proteins, and DNA molecules," said Dr. Baskin.
Once fluorescent, nanotubes can be observed by microscopes, which could enable the construction of nano-size devices."We're talking about the possibility of one day developing probes for biomedical research, quantum computing, possibly even a quantum internet," said Dr. Baskin.
