Material Transfer Agreements

A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is a contract that governs transfer of tangible research materials between two organizations, when the recipient intends to use that material for his or her own research purposes. An MTA defines the rights of the provider and the recipient with respect to the materials, any derivatives, and often publication rights. 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, some types of software, and data.

For more information, please see the UNF MTA website.
