Material Transfer Agreement

Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is a contract used to govern the transfer of tangible research materials between UI and other organizations. It defines the rights of the provider and the recipient with respect to the transferred material, its derivatives and related information. It prevents the material provider from losing control over the material and its research use, protects a researcher's existing and potential intellectual property, and ensures the transfer doesn't conflict with federal regulations and rights afforded in other agreements associated with the research project.

At UI, all the incoming and outgoing MTAs are reviewed, negotiated and signed by the OTT. The individual investigator has no right to sign MTA on the behalf of the university. UI investigators are strongly advised to contact OTT to put a MTA in place before sending out research materials, such as chemical compounds, new materials, plant seeds, bacteria, cell lines, plasmids and animals. To expedite the process of review and negotiation, UI investigators are asked to contact the OTT as soon as possible after receiving MTA from other organizations.
