Students involved in MatchMaestro award

The Lake Erie Protection Fund project team from the college’s Division of Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) recently contributed to Ohio State’s winning of the MatchMaestro award. The MatchMaestro award was presented 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, the NIH-sponsored volunteer registry that helps match researchers and volunteers.

Two EHS students were involved. Tiera Torres, Master of Public Health student, and Liesel Seryak, doctoral student, are part of the college’s Lake Erie Protection Fund project which used ResearchMatch for recruitment. The project was responsible for the largest fraction of volunteer recruitment within ResearchMatch, contributing notably to this award.
