I used DNA from #helacells in part of my doctoral dissertation work at #johnshopkins many years ago. While I learned at the time that the #immortalcells came from a patient at #johnshopkinshospital, I gained a much fuller understanding of #HenriettaLacks through reading #TheImmortalLifeofHenriettaLacks by #RebeccaSkloot (🙏🏻@emnmss). Today, I saw this portrait by Kadir Nelson of the beautiful #HenriettaLacks at Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. #ThankYouHenrietta.

I **HIGHLY** recommend The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It has the flow of prose without disregarding the weight of this true story. It explains the history and science behind almost all human research happening today. But most of all, it’s an amazing and enjoyable read. #HenriettaLacks #HeLa #HeLaCells #TrueStory #Science #ImmortalCells

Henrietta Lacks by Kadir Nelson - a long-overdue nod of recognition to one important lady. And that background!! ❤️ #ladiesofmedicine #bluet #kadirnelson #henriettalacks #immortalcells
Reading assignment for my Ethics class. If you’re in the medical field, appreciate science, or just really enjoy being informed, pick this one up. #immortalcells have been used for decades collected from a cervical tumor from #HenriettaLacks - contributing to the polio vaccine, chemo drugs, atomic bomb testing, space exploration, etc. #immortallegacy #nursingschool #nursepractitioner #dnp #informedconsent
Are you attending #AACR this week? Come see @MilliporeSigma at our booth to learn about our products for #cancerresearch. Did you know In the large majority of cancer cells, telomere length at the end of chromosomes is maintained by the ribonucleoprotein #telomerase. Telomere length and telomerase activity are crucial for cancer initiation and for the cells to overcome cellular #senescence. Here, a FLAG-SNAP-hTERT expressing #HeLa Cell Line can be used to study telomerase function using immunopurification of the active telomerase ribonucleoprotein complexes as well as visualization of subcellular localization of endogenous TERT protein #cellculture #tissueculture #sciart #microscopy #🔬#instascience #cellbiology #science #biology #aacr18 #aacr2018 #henriettalacks #itsucksgettingold #aging #aginggracefully #immortalcells find out more: https://www.sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/product/mm/scc112

Black History Month

Henrietta Lacks (1920-1951) was a black tobacco farmer from Southern Virginia who got cervical cancer and died when she was 31. Before her death, a doctor treating her at Johns Hopkins, took a piece of her tumor without telling her because he realized that her cells, unlike everyone else’s, never died. These cells named HeLa after Henrietta Lacks, have been replicated millions of times to create an endless supply of “immortal cells.” Before HeLa cells, scientists spent more time trying to keep cells alive than performing actual research on cells. In 1952, the worst year of the polio epidemic, Dr. Jonas Salk used HeLa cells to develop a vaccine for Polio. Other HeLa cells have been used as the basic cells that established the process of cloning and in vitro fertilization. HeLa cells were also used to determine that humans have 46 chromosomes and provided the basis for making several types of genetic diagnoses. HeLa cells have been used to repair DNA and have been used in Anti-cancer drugs. Although pharmaceutical companies have made billions of dollars from replicating & selling HeLa cells, Henrietta’s family has never been compensated. It wasn’t until recently that they even knew her cells were being used. In 2010, Rebecca Skloot wrote the book: “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” detailing her life. Oprah Winfrey in conjunction with HBO is developing a film project based on Skloot’s book. In 2013, a settlement with the family has given them some control over the use of HeLa cells, but still no financial reward. She is arguably the most influential person in medicine that the world doesn’t even know.

Did You Know?🤔 She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance. The irony of it all... 😥😳😟This is #majorbig #immortalcells #HBOmovie #OprayWinfrey

"The mother of modern day genetics"
What makes her cells so special, why are they immortal? To be short every human has a biological countdown with how many times our cells can clone themselves, roughly 50 times to be exact. Meaning a individual cell will roughly self destruct itself, after cloning itself 50 times to avoid, becoming cancerous. This process is know as apoptosis the death of cells that occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism's growth or development.

Now if a cell becomes Cancerous, the individual cancer cell will ignore this rule and keep cloning itself more then 50 times, eventually dieing off at some pointHella cells are a mystery though, they don't die off like normal Cancer cells, they just keep on cloning themselves indefinitely until killed of by an outside source. Another remarkable ability they posses is when they come into contact with other cells disease, or non diseased cells they are able to copy, & become that cell meaning they could copy and replicate herpes, aids, polio, etc. We now had access to a indefinitely supply of human cells, & could now mass cultivate them, & from these mass cultivation we were able to finally run millions of test we were not able to run, so easily before. Through this discovery we were able to find a way to treat Parkinson's disease, create a vaccine for polio, & create many other vaccines as well even till this day. Neither she nor her family were consulted when the cell sample was taken or when they were distributed (sold for $250 a vile) around the world. The family has not received financial compensation and lives in extreme poverty.

Informative post. Do you know about the first immoral cell line discovery? These are the immortal cells and the line was derived from cervical cancer cells taken on February 8, 1951 from Henrietta Lacks, a patient who died of her cancer on October 4, 1951. The cell line was discovered by cell biologist, George Otto Gey.He named these cells by the initials of the lady as HeLa cells.These cells found to be remarkably durable and prolific which warrants its extensive use in scientific research. These cells are still in work and are very important tool of cell biologists. . . #information  #immortalcells  #hela  #henriettalacks  #cell  #cellular  #discoveries #revolution  #cellbio  #biology  #science  #cervicalcancer  #cancercells  #cancer  #research  #alive  #cell  #cultures  #laboratory  #cellculture  #poliovaccine  #lifescience  #life  #science  #technology 
Dr. Jessica Shepherd & Dr. Jackie Walters talk with @rollingout about the immortal cells of Henrietta Lacks. #helacures #womenshealth #immortalcells
I have read the book about this Queen and her family. There’s much knowledge to gain from her story. •

📚"The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by @rebeccaskloot - 💡This book has been on my radar since my college molecular biology professor recommended it to my class. It tells the story of Henrietta Lacks, the woman behind the infamous HeLa cells. These cells have been widely used throughout modern science history, from cancer, HIV/AIDS, polio vaccine to cloning. Even I have worked with them when I was an undergraduate research intern. This book struck many emotions. I was appalled by early research practices, and simultaneously, I was heartbroken for the Lacks family. Nevertheless, what I found fascinating was its exploration of the complex relationship between racial inequality, power of the elite, and research ethics. Overall, I give a 👍🏼for this book! #HenriettaLacks #rebeccaskloot #sciencenovel #cancercells #bookclub #immortalcells #journalism #lovetoread #nonfiction

I watched the film adaptation of this book twice on the fligt to New York. When at the end it said it was a book I went to Barnes & Noble on 5th avenue on our firsr day & bought it. A very moving & touching story. My first purchase in New York was a book. Always and forever a book worm 🐛 #culturalstudies #hela #henriettalacks #rebeccaskloot #whyarentweteachingthisinschools #immortalcells
