WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced Wednesday it has terminated a major contract for research that used tissue from aborted babies. The contract with the University of California, San Francisco, funded research that made mice with human-like immune systems for studying diseases. HHS also announced that new grant applications for similar research would be subject to review by an ethics advisory board.
