Guidance for Transferring Research Materials and Data

All data and materials transferred into and outside of the institution require either a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA), a Data Use Agreement (DUA), or both. Material Transfer Agreements are used for the transfer of tangible materials (cell lines, mice, metallurgical samples, biological specimens), whereas Data Use Agreements are used for electronic or hardcopy data (including Protected Health Information, de-identified patient data, and non-human data).

All MTAs and DUAs should be routed through the Technology Transfer Office by sending a request to Andrew Jarrell at andrew.jarrell@case.edu.
