Requesting Cell-lines and/or PDXs
Download Material Transfer Agreements
Open Distribution List MTAs
Investigators may request up to 10 cell lines (cumulative overall requests) with minimal project descriptions (to be briefly outlined in Attachment A of the MTA).
More cell lines and/or PDXs will require a more extensive project description/ justification or a collaboration.
Some previously published cell lines, with originating investigator approval, will be characterized by the Childhood Cancer Repository laboratories and made available through this website and utilize COG MTA.
1. Select the cell line(s)/PDXs by clicking each check box next to the cell line name.
2. Fill out the institutional or commercial/industry information at the bottom of the page.
3. Attach a fully signed MTA (including Attachment A)
4. Attach any additional documents required for your request (i.e. a justification for any request over 10 cell lines total)
5. Click Submit.
For all questions regarding requests and MTAs, please visit our FAQ page.
