4. If the recipient`s technology transfer office requests changes to the MTA, send the verification and approval request to [email protected]. If your outgoing MTA transfer does not meet the criteria for do-It-Yourself Outgoing Non-Profit MTAs, contact [email protected] for help. 3. Send the MTA project to the applicant for verification by their technology transfer office. Do not sign the MTA until the MTA has been approved and signed by the recipient`s technology transfer office. If you wish to transfer or receive physical research material or raw data sets (but no copyrighted databases) to another researcher or company, whether it is a non-profit or a commercial contract, prior agreement is required. The goal is to avoid any misunderstanding about who has what rights, what to do/do with the material, to correct responsibility for errors or problems that may arise and to ensure that you can publish under academic freedom. The most common way to do this is through a hardware transfer agreement (MTA) or a data transfer contract (DTA).
If the above considerations for UC data sharing are met, the following criteria must be met before transmitting data to third parties: Material Transfer Agreement (MTA)An MTA is an agreement between a supplier and recipient of research materials, such as biological materials, devices, chemicals, software and instruments. The MTA allows the transfer of material in accordance with the intellectual and other rights of the supplier, so that the research can continue with the material. Please note that research material transferred as part of an MTA cannot be used in human subjects. If the material is a drug or device used by inhumane subjects, please follow the procedures described on the Clinical Trials page. No individual or department of the UCSF outside the following groups can approve a data exchange agreement. To begin the process, contact one of these five authorized groups. A data agreement is required each time a UCSF investigator sends or receives data of this type, including clinical data, patients or research. Depending on the type of data sent/received, additional verification and authorization of data security may be required. Examples of commonly transmitted human materials are blood, biopsies, stem cells, umbilical cord blood, resistant tumours, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) and patient clinical data. For non-interpersonal transfers (for example.B. mouse.
B, modified cell lines, reagents, etc.), visit the Office of Technology Management (OTM) website or email [email protected]. Contact [email protected] to get support from your outgoing MTA for non-interpersonal materials. 3. Send the MTA project to the applicant for verification by his technology transfer office. Do not sign the MTA until the MTA has been approved and signed by the recipient`s technology transfer office. 1. Confirm that your transfer meets all of the above criteria. There are specific conditions that must be included in any contract with a third party, which involves the use by that third party of health data collected and managed by the UCSF, whether or not the ucSF faculty or staff participate in the contractual agreement.
