‘The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks’

By | From the Collections

We recently wrote on this blog on the life – and afterlife – of Henrietta Lacks, illustrating our post with one of the images of HeLa cells to be found on Wellcome Images.

Those intrigued by the post, may be interested to know that new on the shelves of the Wellcome Library is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by the American science writer Rebecca Skloot, which has recently been published to widespread acclaim in the United States.

For more on this topic, we would also recommend The Way of All Flesh, an award-winning documentary from the acclaimed film-maker Adam Curtis, which is freely available to watch through YouTube.
