    Dr. William "Bill" Harris holds a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota. His research has focused on human lipid and lipoprotein metabolism, especially as they are affected by omega-3 fatty acids.

In 2009 he founded a company (OmegaQuant, LLC, Sioux Falls, SD) to offer the test to researchers, and in 2011 the omega-3 index test was acquired by Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. (Richmond, VA) where it is now available clinically.
