Kenneth R. Peak Brain & Pituitary Treatment Center
David Baskin, MD discusses the treatments and research offered at the center.
We are using genomics and proteomics to build personalized treatment plans- characterizing the genetic tumor profile and performing high throughput chemotherapeutic agent screens to predict efficacy. Our research is also developing novel approaches to fighting cancer, including mitochondrial smart bombs, nanosyringes for efficient drug delivery, drug pump inhibitors to trap chemotherapy in cancer cells, and gene therapy approaches.
