Morning Session: Overall Outcomes Assessment

Discussion of Overall Outcomes of Glue Grants by Goal and Proximity of Impact

Knowledge – Major Advances Achieved?
Methods/Technology/Tools – Could they not have otherwise been achieved?
Community – In-group/Out-group – Supergroup – Leverage - did it make a difference?
Data and Databases – Who cares, do we care, does the community care?
Impact – Has the course of science or medicine been shifted?
