Dr. Williams has had an interest in medical research at an early age. After watching his grandmother struggle with breast cancer, he set out on a journey to find a cure. In college, Dr. Williams spent his spare time in the labs and library researching gene therapy. He won many awards for his efforts.
After receiving his Medical Degree from LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, Dr. Williams became interested in a new concept: destroying cancer cells by using radiofrequency ablation of tumors. This procedure used the same minimally-invasive technique of using imaging to guide the needle straight into the tumor and instead of biopsying the tumor, it was heated and destroyed. This was already being done in the liver at other research hospitals, but was relatively new to other areas of the body.
It didn't take long for the word to spread about this new procedure, and Dr. Williams was performing ablations on many patients around the world.He won many awards including the Radiological Society of North American Resident / Fellow of the Year.
As one of the pioneers of cancer ablation, Dr. Williams founded The American Cancer Ablation Center in 2003 and began seeing patients at his office in Gulf Shores. He takes pride in being able to offer his patients the latest, most advanced medical imaging technology and procedures available to date.

The role of allogeneic stem cell transplantation is evolving in the paradigm of myeloma treatment. Despite its therapeutic potential of a myeloma cure, the use of donor stem cell transplantation or allogeneic transplantation is highly debated in the medical field due to the safety risks and rate of relapse. We are talking to Dr. Komanduri to better understand allogeneic transplants, optimal timing and how to manage graft-versus-myeloma effect for improved efficacy and safety.
Dr. Komanduri is Medical Director of the hematopoietic stem cell transplant program at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, one of the fastest growing programs in the country.
Dr. Ernesto Gutierrez is a published and extensively educated physician. He received his medical degree from Anáhuac University's Faculty of Medicine – the most prestigious private medical school in Latin America. Since then, he has spent considerable time training in the U.S. and abroad achieving postgraduate degrees in Age Management and Regenerative Medicine. One of the significant aspects of Dr. Gutierrez’s training background is his well-rounded approach in the area of whole person medicine which sets the standards of patient care at World Stem Cells Clinic, where each patient is seen not as a disease, but as a complex human being. Dr. Gutierrez joined World Stem Cells Clinic first as Medical Director and soon afterwards was appointed as President for the Clinic, Laboratory and Research Facility. His passion towards the development of novel therapeutic approaches to treat previously untreatable conditions has driven the clinic’s team to develop a unique, safe and highly effective Advanced Stem Cell Therapy for autism which has already changed the lives of hundreds of autistic patients and their families.

The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the possibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathematic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools and how we can enrich youth with opportunities to advance within STEM.
Thursdays, 9 am Eastern, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts:
"The STEM of Success." If you look around certain neighborhoods and the only (legal) job opportunities you can see are at McDonald's or 7-11, meet Dr. Mel Butler and Frank Luca, the director and founder (respectively) of ACE (Alliance for Career and Education), which exposes kids to STEM careers! ACE arranges field trips for kids to meet leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in their own workplaces. Dr. Butler has been a consultant in helping to develop many projects and products including lightweight cement, the HOMV (better known as Hummer), Hot Pockets (yum!) and the Salute to Soul!
Join Rosanna every week to hear interviews with people who are making their dreams come true -- or have tools to help YOU do the same!
