Chief Technology Officer
An internationally recognized expert in vascular biology and tissue engineering, Dr. Stuart Williams is a leader in endothelial cell isolation technology. He is credited with developing and patenting the technique for isolating human stem cells from fat tissue.
Dr. Williams received his Ph.D. in Cell Biology from the University of Delaware followed by postdoctoral training in Pathology at the Yale School of Medicine. In 2007 Dr. Williams was selected as the Scientific Director of the newly established Cardiovascular Innovation Institute, a partnership between Jewish Hospital and the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky. He recently established the Bioficial Organs Program to create human tissues and organs for clinical therapeutics and in vitro drug testing using a patient’s own cells. Central to this effort is the use of three bioprinting technologies. Dr. Williams’ research interests have focused on medical devices and regenerative medicine. He developed and patented the first methods to use fat-derived stem and regenerative cells for therapeutic use.
