Material Transfer Agreements (MTA)
A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is required for the transfer of research materials (e.g. DNA, cell lines and human tissue) between two organizations.
MTAs are used in two situations:
If you are a Newcastle University researcher receiving material from another organisation please complete this form: http://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=1682
If the research project is registered with the Newcastle Hospital’s Trust R&D, please send the proposed MTA to the gerenic R&D email address: Trust.R&D@nuth.nhs.uk
If you are a Newcastle University employee and wish to transfer some research material to another organisation, please complete and submit this form: http://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=1698
For projects registered with the Newcastle Hospital’s Trust R&D, the R&D team will put in place an MTA during the processing of the project for NHS permissions.
We have a generic Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the transfer of material from Newcastle Hospitals to Newcastle University so an MTA will not be required.
