Students, be sure to listen closely to each day’s Black history fact. Friday’s trivia question is based on facts presented throughout the week.
Did you know? Henrietta Lacks passed away 67 years ago, but her legacy lives on within the medical community. Her “HeLa” cells are the first immortal cell line. They have and continue to be studied to produce vaccines and various forms of research. A tumor was taken from her body without the family’s knowledge when biologist George Grey discovered that her cells replicated in ways other cells did not. They were considered the first “immortal” cell line and was used in the ’50’s for polio vaccine research and beyond. The “HeLa” cells were also the first to be successfully cloned. In research, the structure of the cells has been helpful in studying AIDS, cancer, and the development of hormones among other uses. They continue to be used to this day.
