- Protoplanetary disks are the sites of planet formation and therefore one of the foremost targets of future facilities in astronomy.
In this review, I will discuss the main options for using JWST and concurrent facilities to study the early, gas-rich, massive
phases of protoplanetary disks. We discuss the opportunities to study gas and dust in such disks and to derive constraints
on physical and chemical processes taking place there.
