  14. WCMC is a non-profit educational institution, Devoted to research and education. *WCMC will not incur liability on behalf of Cornell University that is not warranted by the normal course of our business.* There are four specific points that WCMC requires in standard indemnification: Any Provision of Services in connection with the Study Institution’s Participation in the Study Sponsor’s Manufacturing Defect of the Study Drug or Device Negligent use of data Indemnification Clinical Trial Agreements Updated September 15, 2006

  15.

  16. Scholarly publication is the fundamental right and responsibility of researchers and the Institution. Sponsors may review manuscripts prior to publication, but may not require terms that allow for “approval” by the Sponsor. 30 days for the removal of confidential information additional 60 days for the filing of patent applications.
