Sign-On Letter Regarding FTR Policies

July 11, 2019

To: The Honorable Alex Azar—Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

"...We write to express our collective and strong opposition to the new policies on research using human fetal tissue announced by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on June 5, 2019. These policies would impose substantial barriers to and limit the use of an essential biomedical research resource that has led to many advances in human health and remains critical for the development of new treatments for a wide range of serious diseases."
