Not all career paths are obvious right from childhood, but in the case of Mark Robson, it’s pretty much a straight line. Start with happy years growing up on a family farm in Jacobstown. Continue with studies at Rutgers University and degrees in agriculture and plant science, culminating in doctorates in plant science and environmental and occupational health. Add a teaching career and a rise to the position of dean of agricultural and urban programs at Rutgers. And now add in a lifetime achievement award for a researcher and teacher who has trained farmers in Thailand, Poland, China and the Philippines.
