Immortal Cells and the Ethics of Cancer Research - What We Learned From Henrietta Lacks
Join Christelle Sabatier, Ph.D., in a discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a book published by Rebecca Skloot in 2010. In this era of citizen science, easy genomic sequencing, and stem cell research, the story of Henrietta Lacks, who quietly passed away in 1951, continues to inform us. Her immortal cells have led to great scientific advances but at great emotional cost to her family. Dr. Sabatier is a Lecturer of Biology at Santa Clara University.
