A simple university-university MTA can generally be handled in a day or two while more complex MTAs, with foreign companies or proprietary materials from industry can take longer to negotiate.
At UNMC, tangible materials can include molecular biology reagents, cell lines, recombinant mice, devices or even software.
To expedite the process you will need:
1. Information related to the source of funding
2. Original source of the materials (or any portion of the material)
3. A description of the intended research making use of the materials
4. Information on the receiver or sender of the materials
