All clients are required to have a current Materials Transfer Agreement between a Principal Invesigator at their respective Institution and the NIH Tetramer Core Facility. Please note that the MTA policy is different for non-profit clients, for-profit clients, and non-profit clients with funding from for-profit sources. 
 
Non-profit clients must complete our standardized MTA, which can be downloaded from our website. This registration only needs to be done once, as long as the PI remains at the same institution.
 
 

Commercial clients are required to complete a separate MTA which is individually drafted by NIH for the specific client and reagents being requested. This document must reference each specific reagent that is requested from our facility. The document is valid for future requests of the same reagents within the specified contract period, but a new commercial MTA is required to cover addtional reagents. Upon review of your request by the TRC, you will be contacted by the NIH Program Officer, Halonna Kelly, to begin the process of drafting this specialized document. 
 
Non-profit clients which will be using our materials for research being funded by for-profit entities must complete both types of MTAs as described above.

New clients or those renewing their registration can send a PDF of the completed and signed MTA/Registration Form to: tcf.manager@emory.edu

NOTE: Faxed forms or forms without the original signatures will not be accepted.

Please contact Dale Long (404-727-8117 or tcf.manager@emory.edu) if you have any questions regarding the registration process.
