The use of material transfer agreements (MTAs) is widespread in today’s research and development environment. Biological materials, such as reagents, cell lines, plasmids, and vectors are the most frequently transferred materials, but MTAs may also be used for other types of materials, such as chemical compounds.
Sponsored Program Services – Contracts Team reviews and approves all MTAs for incoming materials. For these MTAs, complete the Cell-Line Biological Materials Registration or the Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registration form, as applicable. Submit the completed form with the MTA and any pertinent approvals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Technology Commercialization Services creates and processes all MTAs that cover transfers of research materials outside of UConn, to both non-profit and for-profit institutions. Please submit requests and questions to Ana Fidantsef, PhD at email@example.com.
