Table 1 Panel members, home institutions, and self-selected focus areas for break-out discussions. The following lists all panel members, their home institutions, and each member's top choices of topics for break-out discussions. All panel members contributed significantly to the general discussion and to initial break-out discussions. A subset of panel members expanded on initial discussions to create the reports listed in Table 2.
