Mass assembly from clouds to clusters

The process by which stars within clusters assemble their mass is incredibly important but currently not very well understood.  While recent surveys of the Galactic Plane have identified a large number of dense, massive clouds where the next generation of cluster formation will likely occur, progress in understanding the process by which clusters form has been limited primarily due to the lack of angular resolution and sensitivity of the observations.
