Ms. Meyer manages the material transfer agreements (MTAs) for UMB as well as certain corporate research and clinical trial contract negotiations. She joined ORD in February 1988 and spent the first 20 years of her career with the Grants & Contracts group. Over that period of time, Denise developed extensive expertise related to all aspects of sponsored programs administration including the processing, review, negotiation and approval of public and private grants. Denise’s considerable skills in contract review and negotiation enabled her transition to her current role within ORD. In this role, she served initially as a member of the Commercial Ventures & Intellectual Property group (CVIP) and became a member of the Center for Clinical Trials and Corporate Contracts (CCT) when the group was formally established in early 2010. Ms. Meyer is also designated as a liaison between CCT and the Grants & Contracts staff, as she has first-hand experience with COEUS, Grants.gov, and other electronic grant submission systems.
