  1. Resource Description
    Scientific research often requires the exchange of propriety physical materials among researchers such as cell lines, plasmid constructs, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. MTAs offer important protections regarding such issues as ownership, the ability to publish, and rights to resulting inventions necessary, among other, to ensure the investigator’s freedom to access additional materials as well as to collaborate with industry and license future inventions. The Office of Technology Development (OTD) negotiates carefully crafted Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs), a contract governing the incoming or outgoing exchange of tangible research materials between Harvard researchers and other academia, government, and commercial organizations.
