Kalpana Poudel-Tandukar, assistant professor of nursing, recently received word that her paper titled, “Dietary B Vitamins and Serum C-Reactive Protein in Persons With Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection: The Positive Living with HIV (POLH) Study” has been featured in the recent issue of Biomedical Advances. It originally appeared in the Food Nutrition Bulletin in December 2016.

In announcing the honor, the journal notes, “Research results with significant potential to improve health, or to treat or prevent disease, often deserve an immediate leap onto the ‘front page.’ However, scientific breakthroughs don’t always make the front page, and some don’t make any page. We are the platform for you to stand out from among approximately 100,000 papers published each month, in order to attract more attention from the public and potential investors.”

Poudel-Tandukar, who has been invited to further explain this work and its significance in plain language for a wider audience, says of the honor, “I am delighted that my study was selected to be featured in Biomedical Advances because of its innovation and potential for significant impact.”

The web editor adds, “Biomedical Advances is a website focusing on cutting-edge biomedical research from around the globe. Our website receives more than 10,000 visits per month from an international audience of academic and industrial researchers and developers, providing greater opportunity for your results to be recognized and appreciated.”
