In an effort to streamline the transfer of materials to Addgene, a non-profit plasmid repository and long-time collaborator with the university, two master agreements were recently executed between the organization and the Technology Commercialization Office (TCO).
Master Deposit Agreement
The Master Deposit Agreement eliminates the review and negotiation of terms for a deposit agreement with Addgene, saving time for the Principal Investigator (PI). Materials now only need to be reviewed through TCO prior to depositing into Addgene’s repository.
Master Reception Agreement
Both agreements also remove the need for PIs to fill out online MTA request forms. For questions regarding the new process surrounding the Addgene Master Agreements please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
