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 reviews and approves all MTAs for incoming materials. We will negotiate the terms if necessary. To initiate this process, please complete an IPAS form and submit along with the MTA to the SPS mailbox.
Technology Commercialization Services creates and processes all MTAs that cover transfers of research materials outside of UConn Health, to both non-profit and for-profit institutions. Please submit requests and questions to Ana Fidantsef, PhD.
