Material Transfer Agreement Between Companies

The NIH believes that the exchange of research instruments is so important for the future advancement of research that the Agency has issued strict guidelines on the appropriate conditions for the transfer of research materials that contribute to nih1-funded research. when, constraints and ways to release developed materials, especially for programs (such as the Plant Genome Research Program) that focus on creating research resources and tools.2 This internal application form must be completed by HJF researcher and emailed to Dr. Katie Lipka ( Please fill in all sections. „We learned a lot of lessons,“ says Maria Freire, Director of the NIH Technology Transfer Office. „Bayh-Dole is 20 years old, and maybe some of the agreements we`ve cut before wouldn`t have diminished now.“ On the recommendation of the Research Instruments Working Group, the NIH will distill these lessons into a series of draft guidelines to help universities and NIH staff determine best practices in negotiating MTAs. The mere dissemination of the guidelines and getting those responsible for the licensing of technology in universities to read them should help to flatten the dissemination of research resources. Many institutions are still new to licensing technology and are making the same mistakes that others have learned from their own painful experience to avoid them. In particular, the guidelines advise universities to ensure that they do not compromise the ability of their researchers to publish their results and advise them not to enter into passing agreements at any time. This agreement is concluded on the date of execution by THE PROVIDER („EFFECTIVE DATE“) by and between_________________________________, as „PROVIDER,“ a_____________ company, in force, with its main location in the ` and the REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA`, represented by its Agriculture and Natural Resources Division, `THE REGENTS`, with an address at 2801 Second Street, Davis, CA 95618-7774 `Genetic Resources`, is the material of non-human animals, plants or microbial origin containing functional units.

Scientists have traditionally freely shared research materials, and an important criterion for scientific publication was the ability of other researchers to experimentally reproduce the published results and test them.
