Dr. Chuong Tran, a Vietnamese immigrant and newly graduated UH Mānoa M.D., was interviewed on KHON2 TV (May 12, 2013). Dr. Tran's first research experience was as an undergraduate in Dr. Rob Cowie's laboratory in PBRC where he worked on field surveys of alien snails and slugs in Hawaiʻi. He co-authored five publications with members of the lab, including three peer reviewed papers, on one of which he was the lead author. Congratulations, Dr. Tran!
