SCOTT DOUGHMAN, PHD is recipient of several prestigious awards, including a Fellowship in Nutritional Biochemistry from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for studying the role of omega-3s and essential fats in Metabolic Diseases. Dr. Doughman has authored two peer review articles on algae oil omega-3s (Curr. Diabetes Rev., 2007; Int. J. Diabetes in Dev. Count., 2013).
Dr. Doughman founded a company called Source-Omega in 2007 to specialize in algae omega-3s. His insight into omega-3 metabolism has attracted attention in the scientific community and he understands the global need for omega-3 DHA. His doctoral work was on phospholipid-dependent neurotransmitter release mechanisms in neuronal systems at the University of Wisconsin, Department of Biochemistry. His lipids work led to post-doctoral studies on omega-3 and omega-6 transport interactions and metabolism, conducted in the Departments of Developmental Biology and Nutrition at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, Gillings School of Global Public Health.
His public health exposure led him to uniquely understand how omega-3 fats function, but more importantly his biochemistry background gave him insight into the workings of omega-3 DHA in lipoprotein phospholipids.
