COVID-19 has had an unprecedented impact throughout the LASE community across academia and industry. Although many of us struggle to manage the current situation, the purpose of this panel is to look toward the future and provide an outlook on how research priorities have evolved because of, and despite, the pandemic. Panelists will discuss their view on the areas where there is opportunity for growth and how certain topics have emerged as critical as we look beyond COVID-19.
