Jhu Material Transfer Agreement

The MTA defines the rights of the supplier and recipient with respect to materials and derivatives. Biological materials – such as reagents, cell lines, plasmids and vectors – are the most frequently transmitted materials, but MTAs can also be used for other types of materials, such as Z.K. mice, chemical compounds and even certain types of software. Please note that if the material to be sent is a sample of human tissue collected from Johns Hopkins, including associated data or immortalized cell lines from human tissue samples, please complete the Biospecimic Transfer Sheet (BTI) and e-mail it to mta@jhu.edu. If the applicant is from a non-profit or academic organization, there is a JHU model for this on the site. Research materials requested by a for-profit or commercial unit would require another agreement, but ALAS is also easily accessible from the website. The good news is that the requesting entity, to the extent that it does not need to modify this model, can be executed by the external entity and then forwarded to the MTA office for archiving. Therefore, the need to negotiate terms either by you the examiner or the office of the LTD, thus reducing the rotation time. `Outgoing` materials – Send material to an external organization – The website above provides ready access to JHU models for transmissions and from all types of entities. In addition, the website provides direct access to an updated survey tool that informs those of us of negotiating critical information that affects the completion and signature of the MTA.
