Trump Administration Provides Details Of Fetal Tissue Research Restrictions

Science: Trump administration releases details on fetal tissue restrictions
“The National Institutes of Health (NIH) [Friday] detailed how President Donald Trump’s administration will implement restrictions it announced in June on the use of human fetal tissue in research. For some researchers, the announcement brings relief: The policy doesn’t kick in immediately, meaning grant applications already in the pipeline at NIH won’t be affected. But starting in late September, scientists applying for grants will need to explain in detail why they need to use fetal tissue and how it will be obtained. And young investigators supported by training awards will be barred from using fetal tissue altogether…” (Kaiser/Wadman, 7/26).
