The 2013 Robert J. Roberts Award Winner is Mark D. DeBoer, MD, MSc, MCR.

You know Mark’s many contributions to our clinical and teaching missions, and recall that he was inducted last year into the Academy of Distinguished Educators. And it comes as no surprise to any of us that he is a USNWR Top Doctor. But you may not be closely following his research career: In last month’s Pediatrics, for example, Mark was first author on TWO articles:
