The transfer document is a legal agreement with terms and conditions for the use of the shared research materials/tools.  The investigator and those in his/her laboratory who will use the materials/tools are responsible for adhering to those terms and conditions.   All users should review the transfer document from time to time to remain familiar with any restrictions. document

The UAB investigator who is providing the material(s) is responsible for packaging and arranging shipment of the material(s).
