MATERIAL TRANSFER
at Penn

Whenever research materials are transferred into or out of Penn, a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) must be completed and signed by an authorized Penn representative.

The Research Inventory System enables the Penn faculty to initiate their MTA request.  If you are a PENN PI and would like to initiate a MTA please click here (PennKey Authentication Required). 

If you are an external party and would like to initiate a MTA request please contact the PENN Principal Investigator (Penn Directory: https://medley03.isc-seo.upenn.edu/directory/jsp/fast.do) and copy ORS at orsmta@exchange.upenn.edu.
