Annual Hela Women's Health Symposium 2019
This annual symposium honors Henrietta Lacks, an African American woman with cervical cancer, who in 1951 unknowingly donated her cancer cells when a young resident saved some cells before treatment. She died a few months later, but the first immortal human cell line was developed from her saved cells. Named HeLa, the line has been used extensively in cancer research studies and in the development of vaccines; the polio virus was grown in her cells soon after her death and eventually led to a cure. Use of HeLa has lead to important advances such as invitro fertilization, cloning, gene and stem cell research.
