Employee Recognition  

Mr. Hung Pham has been an exemplary Stanford employee for the past 35 years. I have had the pleasure of having Mr. Hung Pham be my laboratory manager for the last 14 years. Hung was a medical student in Vietnam but had to leave at the end of the war. Soon thereafter, he joined Stanford as a laboratory assistant. Luckily for me, he took on the position of lab manager for our federally-funded program in tissue engineering of the hand.

Over the past 14 years with me, he has mentored over 40 undergraduate students, medical students, residents, and post-doctoral fellows. All of these researchers have been very grateful for Hung's role in advancing their careers.
