The Technology & Venture Commercialization Office (TVC) at the University of Utah manages the University’s intellectual property developed by faculty, staff, and students. For studies that involve the transfer of human biological samples outside of the University of Utah, a Materials Transfer Agreement (MTA) may be required from TVC. The MTA must be signed and approved by TVC before the IRB will give final approval for a study. For more information, please visit the TVC website.

What should I submit?  Contact TVC directly to see if any transfer agreements are required for your study.  Attach all agreements to the IRB application on the "Documents and Attachments" Page under "Other Documents".
