What We Do
ICD helps UCSF researchers connect to industry resources

Industry Sponsored Research & Collaborations
Working with industry can either be funded research involving agreed upon UCSF research deliverables, or collaborative research where industry and UCSF investigators work together on joint research goals.

Industry Funded Clinical Trials
Whether you have developed a clinical protocol yourself (Investigator-initiated) or your protocol was designed by an industry sponsor (Sponsor-initiated), ICD can help you get your study started.

Confidentiality Agreements
Confidentiality agreements are used to protect non-public information and allows UCSF researchers and companies to discuss interesting new findings without compromising future patentability or ability to publish.

Material/Data Transfer Agreements
A Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) is needed any time a UCSF investigator sends or receives materials, software or human data into or out of UCSF. ICD is here to help you with this process.
