2025 Early Career Award (sponsored by Adhesive and Sealant Council)

Dr. Ngon Tran Awarded the Adhesion Society Early Career Award!

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Ngon Tran, a distinguished scientist at the DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory, has been honored with the prestigious Early Career Award by the Adhesion Society. This award recognizes Dr. Tran’s significant contributions to the field of adhesion science, particularly her innovative work on surface functionalization methods including clustered hydroxyl groups for improved hydrolysis resistance.  

Dr. Tran’s multidisciplinary research strategies have led to collaborations that push the boundaries of our understanding of adhesion in high humidity and wet environments. Dr. Tran has rapidly established credibility across structural adhesive, composites, and adhesion promoter technologies. Her dedication to mentoring students and serving the broader scientific community, including numerous positions in the Adhesion Society, further exemplifies her commitment to excellence and leadership in her field.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Ngon Tran on this well-deserved recognition and in celebrating her bright future in adhesion science.
