KSFs Celebrate the Diversity of Scientific Contributions: The Story Behind HeLa

All biomedical scientists are familiar with the importance of the HeLa cell line, but are they aware of the story behind it? KSF Dana Crawford (Class of 2011) invited other KSFs to join her in this exploration of the story of Henrietta Lacks in a symposium sponsored by her home institution, Case Western Reserve University. Crawford provides photographs that illustrate their shared celebration of the Lacks family’s enduring contributions to medical science.
