Are you interested in learning more about the citrus industry’s ongoing fight to save citrus from huanglongbing (HLB) disease? Visit the Science for Citrus Health website for access to relevant and up-to-date information about control, treatment and prevention methods. The website also includes a collection of reader-friendly Research Snapshots about the new, cutting-edge tools and methods being developed by researchers trying to prevent the spread and impact of HLB in California, Florida and Texas.

For those interested in learning on the go, tune in to Beyond the Bench, a podcast series exploring the stories behind scientists and their work. Take a journey with University of California, Riverside graduate students and science experts from a wide range of fields as they discuss what it’s like to work as a scientist and the questions that drive their curiosity. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about integrated pest management or how plant viruses can be used to enable a global response to disease, then this podcast is for you!

Beyond the Bench is produced by students and researchers excited about making science accessible. A subsection of episodes (Citrus Series) focuses exclusively on HLB and the scientists working to combat this disease. The podcast explores both research approaches and personal stories from scientists. New episodes of Beyond the Bench are released bimonthly.

Learn more about the students producing this podcast and their science communication efforts by following them on Twitter (@SciCommUCR) and Instagram (@scicommucr) or by visiting their website. You can listen and subscribe to the Beyond the Bench podcast on Anchor, Spotify or Apple podcasts.
