Tokyo Medical and Dental University (hereinafter referred to as “Supplier”) and the Recipient (hereinafter) agree with the following terms with respect to the transfer of material from the Supplier to the Recipient. This material transfer agreement (this “Agreement”) is set forth on the date of __ 201_, (the “Effective Date”), by and between Hiroshima University, a national university society duly organized under Japanese law and which has its principal address at 1-3-2 Kagamiyama, Higashi-Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Pref., 739-8511, Japan (“University”), and, on the one hand, a company that, according to the laws of the main address (“recipient”) organizes and exists, while M._____________ (the “recipient researcher”) on the other hand. We assume that OpenMTA will be most useful for the transfer of biomaterials used in pre-competitive research, such as plasmids, strains and samples whose quantities are not limited due to the slightly replicated nature of the materials and for which the value of different materials is relatively low due to other supply possibilities. We also assume that OpenMTA could be a good thing as a standard institutional policy in contexts where most materials need to be shared freely. We draw attention to the fact that OpenMTA is not suitable for all transfers, for example. B for materials available in limited quantities or subject to strict biosafety rules. Additional complexities, such as data protection, approval and approval by audit institutions, need to be addressed and we are working with others to develop an OpenMTA for these materials. Extending these efforts, for example in coordination with national and international registries, to enable a more open exchange of induced pluripotent stem cell lines, could significantly accelerate the development of useful biomedical applications.
