Basic Science and Pre-Clinical Research

This group within ORC drafts, reviews, negotiates and approves a wide range of agreements for the conduct of basic research and pre-clinical research, which prominently includes Research Agreements (RA), Confidentiality Agreements (CDA),  and Material Transfer Agreements (MTA). These agreements provide the terms and conditions that enable investigators to receive funding, research tools, and information from industry and academic sources and articulate the responsibilities of the investigators and the institution regarding reports, intellectual property rights, and deliverables.
