    This board benefits greatly from the presence of doctors and researchers (e.g. Prof Edwards), and I imagine discussion would be even richer with more of them.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on good ways to bring them in?

    And any good candidates to invite?

    Obviously they are busy, and we want them to focus on their good work, but an occasional appearance would be mutually beneficial given all the brilliant minds here endlessly debating their papers and theories.

    For example, wouldn't it be nice to have Øystein Fluge or Robert Naviaux do an hour long Q&A once a month?

    Dr Mark Vink recently posted.
    Dr Nahle has also posted in the past.
    Janet Dafoe (Rons wife) and their daughter keep us updated on Rons progress and Whitney.
    Dr Keith Geraghty ,and Dr Shepherd also post regularly, and you mentioned Prof Edwards.

    I think we are incredibly lucky.

    I think it´s better if they focus on their research, but I would like to see more communication between researchers, which is why I´m glad that Davis seems very open to this.
