Implementation Science in Nutrition

In Nepal, micronutrient powders are recommended for children aged 6-23 months of age along side breastfeeding and a diverse, nutrient-rich diet of complementary foods.

Prior to joining the faculty at Boston University, Lab Director Lindsey Locks worked for several non-governmental organizations and UN agencies working in global nutrition. This included a two-year collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the US Centers for Disease Control on program evaluations and implementation research on the integration of home-based fortificants into national and sub-national Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) programs. Home-based fortificants are nutrition products added to foods at the time of consumption to increase micronutrient and/or macronutrient availability including Micronutrient Powders (MNP) and Lipid-Based Nutrient Supplements (LNS).

Dr. Locks is a member of the Society for Implementation Science in Nutrition (SISN) and remains active in the global nutrition implementation science community.
