Best Sources For Meditation Science?

Hello friends,

I am working for a meditation non-profit and we are looking for partners for a free online event focusing on discussions about science and meditation. We are looking for organizations who can contribute to the discussions, whether they be advocating for, sharing doubts about, or even just adding commentary about the meeting of science and meditation.

My questions are: 

What are your favorite sources for anything related to the research of medtation?
Are there any angles of viewing this topic you think are particularly important to address?
What would you like to see in a program like this?

Any ideas are much appreciated!
Thanks
