Mark Thompson

PhD Chemistry (Duke U, 1977;  Yale, 1981),

Worked for DuPont for 27 years and am currently Head of Discovery Research, DuPont Crop Protection

Married to Maria, a Technical Writer, for 28 years

Two sons:  Phillip, 26, and David, 22,

Believe it or not, I still play drums in a rock and roll band called, Rock-it Science

Other hobbies include exercising fanatically, am learning golf. 

Maria's hoping for a couple of nice daughters-in-law who can go shopping with her (since she never had that experience with two boys), maybe a grand kid or two, and a quiet life.  She's never been too demanding.

[Ed: Mark was always a paradigm of humility, but he has filed 19 patents during his career at DuPont:   Thompson, Mark E. patents]
