Material Transfer + Data Use Agreements

Material Transfer Agreements and Data Use Agreements

The CWRU Technology Transfer Office (TTO) is responsible for the review and negotiation of material transfer agreements (MTAs) and data use agreements (DUAs). We assist with the preparation and execution of these documents. Every MTA or DUA is required to be signed by an authorized signatory for the university; this can only be done by the TTO.

Contact Walid Jalabi at 216.368.2151 for assistance with your MTA.

Contact Courtney Pokorny at 216.368.0336 for assistance with your DUA.

For all MTA or DUA requests, complete and sign the appropriate review form and return to Walid.

Please note, TTO cannot process your agreement until we have received your completed review form.

Human Samples or Data

There is a new process for agreements that involve human-related data or human-derived samples coming in or going out of CWRU.
Any data use agreement or material transfer agreement for human-related data or human-derived samples must be approved by an IRB or recieve a non-human subject determination from the CWRU IRB before the MTA or DUA can be finalized.

For more information on this process and for working with CWRU Technology Transfer Office and Institutional Review Board for review, negotiation & execution of human-related MTAs and DUAs, see this document:
