The University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute has been named the first, two-time winner of the MatchMaestro award from ResearchMatch, a national, web-based study recruitment registry. Each quarter, the MatchMaestro trophy is awarded to the institution that has enrolled the highest number of research study volunteers. When the University first received the award during the fourth quarter of 2011, UR researchers enrolled 162 volunteers. To receive the trophy during the second quarter of 2012, the UR study teams of James Dolan and Qinghau Li; Michael McKee; and Ronald Rogge and Jack Peltz successfully enrolled 125 volunteers.
“ResearchMatch makes the connection between researchers and volunteers, and together, they improve medical knowledge. It is our pleasure to work with the ResearchMatch team,” said Nancy Needler, Research Subject Advocate for the CTSI and Institutional Liaison for ResearchMatch. “The ResearchMatch team is very supportive of our researchers, and our study teams appreciate the opportunity to use this recruitment tool.”
