Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs)

Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis are constantly expanding the boundaries of their research.  When the research involves sending or receiving material between Washington University and other academic or industry partners, the OTM handles the review and execution of a Material Transfer Agreement.

WashU OTM is responsible for ensuring that the terms of a Material Transfer Agreement are acceptable under Washington University policy. Issues that are of particular concern include confidentiality, intellectual property, indemnification, liability, ownership, publication and permitted use.

Effective March 1, 2019, all invention/material disclosures and requests for Material Transfer Agreements will be processed online.  >> otminnovate.wustl.edu (use WUSTL Key to log in.)
