The MatchMaestro has been awarded to Ohio State's Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) for the first quarter of 2012. The MatchMaestro is awarded quarterly to the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institution that has enrolled the most participants in research studies at their institution via matches made through ResearchMatch.org, the NIH-sponsored volunteer registry that helps match researchers and volunteers.

Like the Stanley Cup, there is only one MatchMaestro; it will be OSU's until the end of the 2nd quarter (June 2012). OSU will have to once again enroll more volunteers into research studies than any other site during this quarter or release the MatchMaestro to another institution.
As of April 30, 2012:
- Ohio State leads the nation in the number of participants enrolled in studies through ResearchMatch (2,228).
- OSU leads the nation in the number of researchers who are using ResearchMatch to recruit volunteers (133 researchers).
- The State of Ohio leads the nation in the number of volunteers registered (3,403 volunteers).
- Within 50 miles of Ohio State, there are 2,296 registered volunteers, which is more than 10 percent of the national registry.
Congratuations to The Ohio State University!
