Sponsored Research Agreements

A Sponsored Research Agreement (SRA) is a contract between the institution and a sponsor for the purposes of funding and conducting research at Fox Chase Cancer Center. An SRA may be funded by for-profit/private industry sponsors.

The SRA can be for specific projects in one laboratory (e.g. to investigate the role of a gene in cell growth) or for multidisciplinary endeavors, such as genomics and bioinformatics. Sponsored research represents a commitment by both parties to promote investigations in a particular area, and often results in proprietary positions.

The SRA includes terms to cover the scope of work to be conducted, reporting responsibilities, timetable expectations, a budget for the research, payment obligations and schedule, options to license the intellectual property arising from the research, protection of the data, and confidential information exchanged during the research.
