Contracts and Clinical Trials Administrators are responsible for reviewing, negotiating, and accepting awards on behalf of the university. Awards are thoroughly reviewed to make sure that the university can legally comply with the terms and conditions, and that those terms and conditions do not place unnecessary risk or burden on the university. Most agreements are held up when an industry sponsor has a rigid Intellectual Property position. These delays are often resolved through explanation of our limitations that govern property rights to IP generated from sponsored research.
