Who paid for those innovative and now discredited procedures performed by neurosurgeon Dr. J. Paul Muizelaar at the UC Davis Medical Center? How much did they pay and where did the money go? In 2010 and 2011, before university officials issued a cease-and-desist order, Muizelaar and his colleague Dr. Rudolph Schrot opened the skulls of three terminally ill brain cancer patients and deliberately introduced bacteria into their open wounds. The neurosurgeons theorized that the procedure would trigger an immune response and prolong patients’ lives. All three died.
