The NCI Technology Transfer Center (NCI TTC) oversees many of CIT's technologies and they can be search and reviewed on their web page.

Standard Forms and Agreements:

  • Letter of Intent (LOI) for CRADA - Prior to final approval of the CRADA, a Letter of Intent (LOI) may be signed allowing the research to proceed pending final negotiation and review.
  • Materials-Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (Materials CRADA) - is a simpler form of CRADA. It is limited in time to one year and does not allow for funds to be provided for support of research personnel, but does provide for the transfer of intellectual property rights to the collaborator.
  • Simple Letter of Agreement (SLA) - a replacement for the Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) - used for the exchange of materials with outside organizations for research purposes.
  • Frequently asked questions about the Simple Letter of Agreement.
  • Letter of Collection - used for collecting materials from a foreign country for screening, evaluation and testing.
