Send Materials or Data to External Collaborators

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.

JHM Outbound Human Biospecimen Transfer Information Sheet

The applicable JHM IRB guidance and JHM police are available here:

JHM IRB Guidance on Transferring Human Biospecimens

JHM Policy on Transferring Human Biospecimens to Outside Organizations


Send JHU Data to External Collaborators
