Asim K. Duttaroy is an Indian born American medical scientist who, since 2001, works as a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Norway.[1] He was born in Gopinagar (Gangnapur), Nadia district, West Bengal, India.[citation needed]

Duttaroy is the author of over 300 research papers and book chapters, has authored or edited several books, and also holds several international patents.[2] His research contributions have led to several industrial developments worldwide such as Provexis.[citation needed][3] Duttaroy, while he worked as Professor (1990-2001) at the Rowett Research Institute at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, United Kingdom, discovered that an extract from tomato had a positive effect in the prevention of blood platelet aggregation.[4][5][6]

Another area of his research has been the investigation of the fatty acid transport system in human placenta and its roles in placental preferential transfer of critically important nutrients such as docosahexaenoic acid,22:6n-3 (DHA) and arachidonic acid,20:4n-6 (ARA) from the mother to the fetus.[7]

Duttaroy serves as Editor-In-Chief of the peer reviewed journal Food & Nutrition Research,[8] which has an Impact factor of 3.89 (2020).[citation needed] Duttaroy serves on the editorial boards of several other journals, including Prostaglandins Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids,[9] Nutrients,[10] and European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology.[11]
