Send Human Biospecimens to External Collaborators
Outside entities wishing to access human biospecimens maintained or collected at JHM may only do so pursuant to a research collaboration with JHM researchers that is documented in a research agreement or MTA. If the biospecimens are collected and transferred as part of a clinical trial agreement (CTA) and IRB-approved protocol, the CTA will include terms that address the transfer and use of the samples. For other transfers, a JHM Outbound Biospecimen Transfer Sheet should be completed and submitted to the JHM IRB following the processes found here.
The applicable JHM IRB guidance and JHM police are available here:
