Contracts include: Confidential Disclosure Agreements, Material Transfer Agreements, Data Transfer Agreements, Collaboration Agreements, Industry Sponsored Research Agreements, Service Agreements, Testing Agreements, and Clinical Trial Agreements
Experience: Contracts of this nature often contemplate outcomes for intellectual property, publication, and confidential information, all of which are paramount to continuing research and development in all scientific fields. Kimberly is adept at determining when a contract is needed, what kind of contract is needed, and how to keep the best interest of the client in mind.
Additionally, as a seasoned research contract analyst, Kimberly understands how academic institutions are organized and how to connect with the right people at the institution when a project is being proposed. These groups may include the research contracts group, the sponsored programs office, the technology transfer office, and/or the office of general counsel. Communication between all of these groups may be required at any point during contract review and negotiation.
Finally, her background in cell and molecular biology allows her the ability to both understand and translate biomedical and life sciences into lay terms when liaising between parties. This scientific understanding also allows her the ability to identify scientific programs that may synergize with a client’s research and development goals.
