September 7, 2022

Quan (King) Nguyen, a chemical & biomolecular engineering undergraduate that has been in the Weitz Group since 2020, has recently been accepted into the Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF) 2.0 program. Created by U.S. Congress in 2003 to “strengthen the bilateral relationship between the United States and Vietnam through educational exchange activities,” the program offers academic mentoring and financial support while building an academic and professional network of Vietnamese scientists in the U.S.

Quan is mentored by group research scientist, Stephen Beckett, and works largely on projects related to Covid-19 and expanding the Covid-19 Event Risk Assessment Planning Tool. Upon being selected out of hundreds of applications for the VEF 2.0 program, Quan described being accepted as “a great honor!”

Congratulations, Quan!
