Invited speakers are requested to use the questions below as guide for their presentations; each speaker is requested to represent and present the overall state of CLas/bacterial control- related research on his assigned topic, to include not only his own work but also that of others working in that research area(s) so that the committee will gain an understanding of each of these critical areas of research.

1. In general, what have been the major research accomplishments, over the past 10 years, by your own research group as well as other groups, in the area about which you are speaking?
2. What research results/outcomes generated by the research community have been useful to CLas or HLB control, and how?
3. What are the important current research efforts in these areas?
4. To what extent are research collaborations and shared resources contributing to the progress and success of these projects?
5. (If applicable) What is slowing down the translational aspects of this area of research?
6. What other information/research is needed in the future to come up with better strategies for controlling CLas/HLB?


Discussants: All invited speakers, committee members, invited discussants, and registered participants.
