The SATB2 Gene Foundation requires all applicants for the iPSC (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) bank to complete the application and agreement, along with the iPSCs Bank Material Transfer Agreement, in order to access and use the iPSC Bank biological materials. Only SGF approved applicants may have access to the materials. These materials are for research purposes only and are not transferable to any non-approved third party.
Step 1: Complete the application and material transfer agreement (MTA). In addition to the application and MTA, submit the following supporting materials:
