Stanford University Material Transfer Agreement

Data agreements with obligations on the part of the university are verified by one of the above-mentioned contract offices. For more information on the processing of data agreements and who can sign them, see the February 2015 memo of the Vice Prophet and Deskans for Research. TIA is necessary for human tissue transfers (see below) and funded by the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). SLAC prohibits the exchange of funds between parties under an MTA and a « Funds in » agreement, such as an SPP or CRADA agreement or a « funds out » agreement such as a supply lease agreement, can be used when funds are necessarily exchanged between the parties in connection with the transfer of equipment. Stanford encourages the free exchange of information and material with fellow researchers, whether those colleagues work in other academic or non-profit institutions or in industry. The increasing practice of using AA when non-human biological material is shared for in vitro research has become an obstacle to these interactions. We have worked with our institutions through peers to eliminate the use of A.A. where possible and instead build on the long-standing practice of publicly recognizing colleagues for the materials they have made available in documents and presentations. As a result, Stanford does not require or encourage the use of an MTA if you give your fellow researchers non-human biological materials to use for in vitro research purposes. As a general rule, restrictions on the confidentiality of materials or research results are not appropriate between academic researchers and are generally not necessary between academic and industrial researchers. Inbound materiel transfer agreements govern the use of research material from an external organization. All incoming A.A. must be verified and signed by the OIC.

Not always. Stanford encourages researchers to share laboratory materials without agreement, if possible. Access to large data sets is an important part of research at Stanford. Often, data providers or recipients need an agreement signed in writing or online. Data agreements are different from material transfer agreements, which typically involve the transfer of material laboratory materials such as reagents, cell lines, or mice. Please add an MTA or a non-executed SLAC MTA short form to the SLAC ServiceNow portal: Please contact PAO ( or SLAC Legal ( for support. In order for SLAC to meet Stanford-DOE`s first contract, SLAC requires the use of an MTA to send SLAC materials or receive materials at SLAC`s premises.
