A material transfer agreement (MTA) is a contractual document used to send biological and research materials from one party to another party for research purposes. An MTA is not a sale, but the sending party may charge the receiving party for reimbursement of shipping or processing costs for the material. There are two types of MTA – Incoming and Outgoing. In an Incoming MTA, UNTHSC is receiving material from another party. In an Outgoing MTA, UNTHSC is sending material to another party.
To request an MTA, please complete the appropriate expediting form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have received a draft MTA from the other institution, please attach it to the request email.
