Congratulations to Pamela Dillon, Pharm.D., research liaison for the C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR), who presented two abstracts on behalf of the CCTR at last week’s Association of Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS) conference in Washington, D.C.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
In her first presentation titled, “Pilot Funding: An Evaluation of Return on Investment,” Dillon discussed the return on investment (ROI) realized through the CCTR Endowment Fund program. Since the development of the draft abstract, it has been determined that the ROI calculation is $13.74, meaning that for every $1 of CCTR Endowment Fund awarded, Virginia Commonwealth University sees $13.74 in extramural grant funds from this particular group of investigators.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            The second presentation focused on the research speed networking event co-hosted by the CCTR and Tompkins-McCaw Library this past January. The speed networking event took place in conjunction with more than 40 activities that made up “Ready, Set, Grant!“, a four-day event aimed at helping researchers learn competitive grant writing skills. …………………………………….
