Title Transfer Agreement Deutsch

13 04 2021

In order to facilitate broad access to research resources, the university encourages its researchers to consider depositioning university-owned research tools at permanent storage sites for further distribution. Examples may be entities like Jackson Labs or Addgene. Researchers who identify an interest repository that accepts materials can use MyRA to send an MTA (transfer direction – shipment) to the Office of Sponsored Programs for such filings. For any questions about deposits, please contact 412-624-7419. Our university is a signatory to the Uniform Biological Material Transfer Agreement (UBMTA) Master Agreement (UBMTA), a contractual mechanism published by NIH on behalf of PHS to facilitate the transfer of biological material between academic institutions. For institutions that have accepted the terms of the UBMTA master contract, it is not necessary to negotiate individual terms for any transfer of a biological material. Instead, a letter of execution is implemented, which refers to both the biological material, the supply agency and the host institution. Where possible, the Clinical/Corporate Contracts Services team will use UBMTA to expedite the transfer of applicable biological materials. When exchanging research materials with other institutions, it is important to understand the context in which these research materials are shared.

If our university`s research material is shared with another organization that uses these materials for a research project of its own conception, where our university is neither intellectual nor practical, this transfer would most likely be as an outgoing MTA. The term “cooperation” can mean different things to different people. From the office of Sponsored Programs perspective, collaboration occurs when we share our research materials with another entity and work together on a jointly developed project. The agreement chosen for the transfer of research materials is chosen on the basis of cooperation with the recipient institution and a large number of other factors.
