A Material Transfer Agreement (MTAs) is a document that protects your intellectual property (IP) when you either provide or receive research materials to and from other institutions or corporate entities. Research materials include cell lines, cultures, bacteria, nucleotides, proteins, transgenic animals, pharmaceuticals, or chemicals. Each exchange of research material requires an MTA. For repeated exchanges of the same research material, standardized MTAs can help streamline the process.
