Can Individual Researchers Sign Data Use Agreements at CWRU?

Non-public data transferred into and out of Case Western Reserve University require Data Use Agreements (DUA). Data Use Agreements are used for electronic or hardcopy data (including Protected Health Information, de-identified patient data, limited data sets, HIPAA-protected data, and Proprietary Data), and when transferring non-public data that is subject to restrictions on its use.

Individual researchers are not authorized to sign Data Use Agreements on behalf of the University. The Technology Transfer Office is responsible for working with investigators and outside entities to create DUAs with acceptable and consistent terms and conditions. DUAs must be signed by an Institutional Official of the University.

All questions and requests for DUAs should be routed through Andrew Jarrell in the Technology Transfer Office at andrew.jarrell@case.edu.

 
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.
